Reach Inside Strive for Excellence (R.I.S.E.)

The RISE program utilizes a health educator who facilitates comprehensive, age appropriate, evidence based and medically accurate sexuality education for youth ages 13-21. The goals of the program are to reduce teen pregnancies and reduce STD/HIV rates among youth within the City of Rochester.

A workgroup of students in class.

The program is located at Edison Career and Technology High School as well as our summer programs within the Rochester community. The program also provides a curriculum called Family Talk which helps parents, grandparents and other caregivers connect with their children around sex and sexuality, healthy relationships, HIV and AIDS, as well as information on substance use.
