RISE Academy @ White Branch Library

RISE Academy meets every Thursday from 4:30 – 6:30 pm at White Branch Library. RISE Academy provides an opportunity for students in grades 8-12 and early college to have access to academic assistance and enrichment activities in a safe and quiet space that is close to home. By providing refugee and immigrant students with engaging, educational activities and one-on-one advisement, we hope that students are encouraged and motivated to attain all their future educational and personal goals!

We are always looking for engaging and consistent volunteers willing to dedicate their Thursday evenings to empowering refugee youth. If you are interested, email elizabeth@syracuserise.org for more information.
