This casual, open-table gathering is where the RISE staff loves to meet new people, catch up with volunteers, answer questions, and tell anyone and everyone in the community about their programs and events. If you’ve ever been curious about what RISE does or would just like some casual community time with staff and past volunteers, this is a great way to connect—and you can start off your ‘Casual Friday’ with a smile.

RISE Academy’s mission is to help people find freedom from cycles of incarceration. They work with incarcerated individuals, include pre- and post-release. Their inside-out model bridges incarceration to the community and considers all the critical steps in that journey. RISE Academy prepares and trains people for each phase through intensive character development, employment readiness, job creation through entrepreneurship, and case management.
