About Us

Refugee Youth Success and Empowerment (RYSE) Initiative provides cross-collaboration and capacity-building infrastructure for community-based mentorship programs supporting young adult refugees working towards academic, career, and personal goals. 

RYSE (pronounced "rise") is developing the infrastructure to provide programmatic support for mentorship programs to organizational staff at refugee-serving partner organizations, facilitate cross-collaboration and sharing of best practices amongst refugee youth mentors, and transfer relevant and applicable life skills and growth opportunities to young adult refugees.

RYSE’s vision is to empower young adult refugees living in the United States with the contextual life skills to pursue opportunities for further education, career choices, self-sufficiency, and self-actualization in their new home with the support of the local community.
