Saturday Academy

RISE’s Saturday Academy meets every Saturday from 10 am-noon at White Branch Library. Saturday Academy provides an opportunity for students in grades 6-12 to have access to academic assistance and enrichment activities on the weekend in a safe 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 Saturdays to empowering refugee youth. If you are interested, email for more information.
