We discovered that BC’s youth were not being sufficiently educated in fundamental skills such as financial literacy, business etiquette, and employment skills.
R.I.S.E developed interactive workshop on skills like budgeting and business communication. To address increasing importance of computer literacy in the workplace,
R.I.S.E introduced its Intro to Coding workshop in 2017.
Our 2nd R.I.S.E to the Top Conference brought the community together to learn all workshop topics in a full-day event. We will award two R.I.S.E participants $500 scholarships to support their post-secondary education.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
R.I.S.E - Relationship, Innovation, Success, Empowerment - is a student lead program in its second year of operation designed to educate youth in areas the education system is lacking. Through personal experience, many of us went through the change from high school to university and R.I.S.E aims to educate the youths on these changes to better prepare them.
