Rise is a youth-led nonprofit dedicated to providing resources to those with learning differences and those who support them. Through teaching about learning differences and breaking harmful misconceptions, our goal is to create a community in unity for the common goal of equitable educational opportunities regardless of the presence of a learning difference. In guiding parents and students through the process of getting educational support, we seek to eliminate fear and increase awareness. This community of students and allies will support and celebrate each other, building self-esteem and courage. At Rise, we support those with learning disabilities in rising up to the challenges that come along with living with a learning difference.
