Review for Arise Foundation, Jupiter, FL, USA
The ARISE Foundation has a wealth of information for children and teens. Provided in their curriculum are such titles as Teen Anger Danger, Gangs 50+ Stories of Fractured Lives and Life Skills for Young Folks. The books are easy to understand and packed with valuable lessons. Each structured lesson is interactive, engaging, to-the-point and anything but boring. ARISE trains juvenile justice officers, school administrators, probation officers or anyone with an interest in working with at-risk youth how to become certified Life Skills Instructors. The Life Skills instructors learn valuable lessons along the way and are highly motivated to reach and help those in their care.
ARISE helps at-risk youth by teaching them the life skills they should have learned from the adults and authority figures in their lives.
Please! Help ARISE, help others... Please!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Working with the founders, Edmund and Susan Benson. Watching their enthusiasm with each training, webinar or new life-skills book (or as Edmund calls them -- his children). And, the excitement as ARISE curriculum is being used around the world and making a difference to so many.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make this curriculum available to every young person in every school and in every neighborhood to educate before the troubles start.
