RYSE creates safe spaces grounded in social justice that build youth power for young people to love, learn, educate, heal and transform lives and communities.
RYSE was born out of a youth organizing movement initiated in 2000 in response to a string of homicides amongst youth near Richmond High School that galvanized students to take action to address the violence and lack of safety at school and in the community. Students organized vigils and community forums with over 1,500 youth and community members, met and worked with local officials and stakeholders on a comprehensive assessment of youth-identified priorities and solutions, culminating in the RYSE Youth Center (RYSE), which opened its doors on October 18, 2008.
We envision Richmond as a strong, safe, healthy, united community where youth have the opportunity to lead, to dream, and to love.
We envision a community that inspires youth to live with pride and purpose, where the sounds of gunshots have been replaced by the sounds of organizing, song, collaboration, laughter, and learning.
We envision a movement led by young people that ensures dignity for youth, their families, and communities.
We envision youth and adults working together in partnership to hold all public systems and the private sector accountable to serving the community and not exploiting its people.
We envision communities where equity is the norm and violence is neither desired nor required, creating a strong foundation for future generations to thrive.
Safety: The RYSE Community commits to safety so all young people feel comfortable and confident being themselves while broadening their horizons.
Youth Leadership: The RYSE Community values young people as creative, powerful, and responsible community leaders.
Justice and Equity: The RYSE Community promotes justice and disrupts injustice in our communities.
Partnership: The RYSE Community embraces mutual trust and partnership between and among youth and adults, and believes in learning and making decisions together.
Creativity: The RYSE Community fosters imagination, creativity, and innovation.
Fun: The RYSE Community has fun and celebrates together.
