Saturday Academy

RISE’s Saturday Academy meets every Saturday from 11AM-2PM at the Destiny Christian Center and seeks to provide students with a safe space to play and be creative, as well as to be an education resource for those who need assisted homework help and Regents test preparation. By providing refugee and immigrant students with engaging field trips, educational activities that let them channel their creativity, and one-on-one advisement, we hope that these students are encouraged and ultimately motivated to attain all their educational and personal goals in the future!

We are always looking for engaging and consistent volunteers willing to dedicate their Saturdays to empowering refugee youth. If you are interested, email for more information.
