Youth R.I.S.E. is distributing supplies to 50 families in the Kansas City community in response to COVID-19. Our volunteers are making deliveries every Friday to help the parents and kids during this difficult situation that we are facing.
Youth R.I.S.E. is in need of donations to be able to keep supporting families. Please take the time to make a donation through our website or contact , if you'd like to donate an item.
The CARES Act allows for up to $300 per taxpayer ($600 for a married couple) for those who take the standard deduction. By giving to Youth R.I.S.E. today, you can reduce your 2020 taxable income.
WHAT WE DO
Youth R.I.S.E. mentors and provides support to youth between the ages of 9 and 22 years of age. At this age, kids require the assistance and support of someone who can take the time to coach them on how to rationalize the challenging decisions that could easily affect their futures.
While many participants are initially attracted to our program through the game of soccer and its camaraderie, they are also drawn to the attention they receive in the form of tutoring in basic school subjects and community service activities we engage in as a group.
Our soccer program currently consists of boys teams (9 to 22 year olds) with players representing 24 different nationalities and various schools in the area.
Mentors are matched with youth (9 to 22 year old) to focus on building relationships and improving their academic achievement.
Selected individuals are given the opportunity to serve within their community and gain experiences in various realms of nonprofit work and mentorship.
