Working with our inspiring partners Rising Ground, STEPS, RAPP, Roblox Corporation, Scholar Stem, Police Athletic League and Evolve Strategic Communications, we aspire to ensure all New York City children have access to critical educational opportunities. Through our extended network we continue to build and expand our program aiming to reach students throughout the country whose opportunities are diminished due to limited access to online learning and technology education.
Rising Ground delivers innovative educational programs from early childhood through high school and dedicated support that facilitates safe environments for children and helps families thrive. Its results focused programs help youth involved in the juvenile justice system, promote independence for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, provide proactive community health initiatives and support those impacted by intimate partner violence. The organization was honored as the Gold Winner of the New York Community Trust Nonprofit Excellence Awards.
