United Families Safe Communities

RISE for Youth is a nonpartisan organization committed to dismantling the youth prison model and ensuring every space that impacts a young person’s life encourages growth and success. RISE promotes the creation of healthy communities and community-based alternatives to youth incarceration. Our work centers youth and their communities who together, challenge racial and social injustice in Virginia.

RISE for Youth knows that prison is no place for children and we work to ensure that every child in Virginia lives in a healthy community. We are committed to ensuring that every resource allocated for rehabilitation is used to support youth who come in contact with the juvenile justice system and their families within their own communities.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY to start in June!
