The Rising for Girls

The Rising for Girls addresses the specific needs of young women growing up in today’s challenging world. We are offering our girls-only Rising program at both Meany and Denny International middle schools.

How it works

The highly interactive and innovative curriculum of The Rising for Girls is offered each week. Female facilitators and mentors help transform these young scholars by encircling them with a healing curriculum, positive role models and a place where they can feel nurtured and accepted.

Innovative curriculum

The Rising curriculum is rooted in prevention and offers the principles, practices and tools that young girls need in order to successfully navigate their school years and future careers. During the weekly sessions, we cultivate cultural pride and self-esteem, develop critical thinking and literacy skills, and instill a love of learning and high achievement. Studies have shown that students in The Rising have a higher sense of self-worth, confidence and hope – qualities that are seen as predictors of lifelong success.
