Once upon a time, a group of people came together with one simple goal – to save lives. They refused to suffer in silence any longer and decided to take action. That’s how RISE TOGETHER was born.

RISE TOGETHER has been on a mission to educate, engage, and empower young people to use their voices for change for over a decade. They focus on preventing substance use and promoting positive mental health, and they’ve already reached over 275,000+ students.

At RISE TOGETHER, they know that every voice counts. They encourage young people to stand up and speak out on the issues that matter most to them, giving them the tools they need to make a difference in the world.

Through their grassroots efforts, they’ve ignited a movement of hope, saving lives. RISE TOGETHER is more than just a non-profit organization – they are a community of passionate individuals who believe in making a difference. They are dedicated to their cause, and their impact has been felt far and wide. So if you want to be part of something bigger than yourself, join RISE TOGETHER. Together, we can make a greater difference and save lives.


Today, RISE TOGETHER empowers communities and creates strong YOUTH advocates and leaders.

Our solution involves providing educational programs, workshops, and youth training that are evidence-informed and data-supported. Our team of professionals with diverse backgrounds, educations, and skill sets works closely with communities to identify youth issues through a unique student research approach. We provide resources, education, and support to inspire youth to ask for help for the first time and motivate others to act toward a healthier lifestyle.

At RISE TOGETHER, we believe in the power of EDUCATION and TRAINING to drive positive change in our communities.

“We were able to see this was not your ordinary “Say No To Drugs” presentation. Not only did the speakers share their challenges, but they also shared how they learned to forgive themselves and accept who they are.  This is an important message for students and adults hoping to move past mistakes or missteps.  Sometimes, we just need permission to let those things go.”

“They exuded professionalism and care that sent a positive message to our students as they entered.  My lasting memory of the day was watching how Anthony and Nadine effortlessly invoke pride, and self-awareness in even some of our most difficult students”
