We empower and educate through outdoor adventure.
We empower survivors of trauma on outdoor adventures; paddleboarding and cycling as they can emerge as champions together, with increased resilience and strengthened social bonds. We work with survivors of human sex trafficking, foster youth, domestic violence and other trauma. Our survivors move through adventures together; paddling in the bay to the sunset, cycling through the mangroves, encouraging one another, and rising up in confidence, embracing their individual and shared strength together.
We educate the public about Miami's survivors through paid adventures marketed to Miami's tourists. Our social enterprise paddle and bike tours generate income for our survivors' adventures, while connecting Miami's visitors to our survivors through our tours. These clients want to stay involved as donors and volunteers and report an increase in a sense of purpose by being involved with our program. We're creating a global network of supporters who are empowering Miami's survivors to Rise Up as champions, one adventure at a time!
