A Movement to Inspire and Elevate Young Women
The Rise2Raise (R2R) Collective believes in the transformative power of girls and young women. Through youth-centered and youth-led programming, the Rise2Raise Collective is a collection of programs that equips middle school and high school girls to harness their power and elevate others through peer-to-peer mentorship and education, community action, and connections to leaders, resources, and opportunities.
Why Middle and High School Girls?
Reports show that young people today show an increase in poor mental health, including struggles with depression, stress, and anxiety. The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated this. Research shows that confidence begins to decrease for girls as they enter adolescence. This is when they are inundated with messages telling them to be careful, value perfection, and avoid risk. EmBe is a community leader connecting women and families to people, resources, and opportunities. We are committed to building strong bonds and connections with young people to promote positive mental and emotional health.
