We hope this article finds you in good health & high spirits. As most of you may already know, we’re currently running our very first program since the state of emergency was declared back in March. The program is our 2020 version of RISE Summer School. Despite countless hurdles & challenges, we worked diligently to figure out a safe & healthy way to get kids back in a learning environment. Our Summer School programs have historically been amongst our most successful initiatives. The reasons for this sustained success are many. There’s one ingredient specifically that I truly believe sets, not only this program, but our entire organization apart from other youth focused organizations. That lone reason is the caliber of our staff.
