BENEFITING: Rise Colorado
RISE Colorado works with families to provide them with the knowledge, skills, and tools to be their children's number one teacher and advocate. Living in a world where education is not equal for all and low-income students and students of color continue to suffer from a pervasive opportunity gap in our public education system, RISE knows that families are the key to create change. When families are awakened to the inequities that exist in our public education system, there is nothing they won't do to ensure their children receive the excellent education they deserve.
Join us in our mission to empower families and support them as they lead the movement for educational equity in Aurora, CO. At RISE, families set the agenda to create the change they believe will improve academic achievement for their children and community. A donation to RISE is a donation to student and family voice. Show your support for families to make decisions that will benefit their children and the children of their community because they are the true stakeholders in our education system.
Your donation will directly support:
- Workshops to provide hands-on tools and strategies that families can use to support their children’s education at home
- Professional development of Aurora school leaders and teachers to provide them with best practices in culturally responsive teaching along with diversity and equity training
- Additional outreach and engagement of Latino, refugee, and low-income families and families of color in Aurora to support them in the education of their children
