Review for Arise Foundation, Jupiter, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As of 4/26/2011, ARISE has certified over 5,457 Group Facilitators who have gone on to teach more than 5,400,000 documented hours of interactive ARISE Life Skills lessons for at-risk youth and teens across the United States and beyond.

Its founders, Edmund and Susan Benson have dedicated their golden years to helping at-risk youth become good citizens by writing and publishing curricula that have been proven extremely effective in evidence-based studies.

I have first hand knowledge of the dedication of the founders to the goal of giving at-risk youth a second chance.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure that they get more exposure in the media and the community so that they would be able to continue this wonderful mission.

Role:  Advisor & I am transferring their life management skills curriculum to be delivered online.
