Railroad Street


The Railroad Street Youth Student Empowerment Program (RYSE) offers young people the chance to explore their goals and potential next steps after high school. Over the course of five days, participants will meet with panelists and local partner organizations to create community, network, and learn about balancing tasks, goal setting, financial behavior (taxes, budgeting, etc.), and to participate in self-reflection and self-care activities.

Youth receive a stipend of $200 upon completion of the program and are eligible to apply for a scholarship of up to $20,000. The scholarship may be used over the next four years to assist with tuition at a state or private college or university, a community college or vocational school, a focused curriculum for a gap year, or any GED Program.


The RYSE 2022 program is taking place July 25th through July 29th.
