The RAISE (Raising Awareness and Inhibiting Stigma Everywhere) program uses our proven program structure as a springboard from which students focus specifically on mental health.
20 high-school students tackling the community’s biggest issues
Unique RAISE Components
Throughout all our programs, we use a unique 3-step philanthropic process intertwined with a robust leadership curriculum to teach teens the skills to make an impact.
RAISE is an example of customizing the curriculum to fit a community’s needs.
Because RAISE is a program focusing on a specific community need, every aspect of the YouthRoots program looks a little different in RAISE than in general programs. In RAISE, students learn about the complexity of mental health issues, different ways of addressing mental health needs, and work to tackle the stigma associated with mental health.
