ARISE Program Sampler
ARISE Teen Anger Management Life Skills lessons are derived from almost 30 years of working with the most violent youth, who unburdened by conscience, attack friends, family and strangers alike.
There are a variety of reasons that teens join gangs. Some are looking for prestige and excitement. Others are looking for income, protection, or a sense of belonging. There are also factors that help protect youth from joining gangs. Youth that use their free time in positive ways are more resistant to joining gangs. After-school programs, sports, and the like give youth a sense of purpose, relieve boredom, and give them connections with others
Do you know anyone who would take a seat on an airliner without a clue of where it was going? Have you heard about girls who voluntarily sentence themselves to 20 years to life of hard time and their cases never went to trial. What about other girls who blindly decide to spend everyday depressed, looking terrible, dependent, cursing the day they made their big mistake.
No one wants to live in pain if they can help it. Learning how our body works and what it takes to make it happy could be the most important lesson we learn in life. Today, most youth are more familiar with their favorite music group then they are with their own body systems. ARISE Teen Health Lesson Plans have been written specifically for teens who have no interest in the written word, in fact they hate to read.

When prominent members of the community are ordered to do community service by the courts, ARISE can design a tax deductible program teaching life-skills to inner-city youth to fulfill their legal obligations, their schedules, and personal goals in a matter of days anywhere in the United States.
Dr. Carl Cohen’s model of homelessness suggests that a number of risk factors accumulate over time to create homelessness. These factors include age, race, extremely low income (current and lifetime), disruptive events in youth, such as the death of a parent, prior imprisonment, chemical abuse, psychiatric disorders, victimization, poor social support, and prior history of homelessness.
