Life skills are not hereditary; they must be taught. With this in mind, we dedicate ourselves to building social and emotional fitness in troubled youth. About ARISE
- ARISE group lessons are NOT dependent on previously learned material. This makes it possible for youth new to a group to jump in easily. This in itself provides an emotionally comfortable environment.
- All ARISE Life Management Skills curricula are intended for organizations where class turnover and absences are the norm.
- ARISE lessons are appropriate for use in groups where youth of different ages, academic abilities, and various backgrounds are taught.
- Almost three decades of experience has proven that learning in ARISE groups is not an individual act; it's a social act where everyone participates and absorbs life’s most important lessons
ARISE life skills lessons are necessary for teens that have been disappointed and betrayed, vulnerable, lost and alone, uprooted and unloved, forced to make his or her way through a world that makes no sense.
Experience counts. Almost 30 years of working with troubled teens allows us to GUARANTEE that ARISE life skills curricula will work or your money back. It’s as simple as that. Read more »
