How you help Rise Above is only possible thanks to the help of many volunteers and donors. These volunteers, first and foremost, build relationships with our students. These relationships, in turn, are what lead to transformation in our students' lives.
About us Neil and Veronica Fernandes began Rise Above to give hope to high school students trapped in a cycle of hopelessness and those burdened by unsupported academics through education, job training, and character development. They felt called to reach out to students who are marginalized in the system- those who have been removed from school. After much prayerful consideration and research on best practices for assisting this population, Rise Above was formed. Rise Above seeks to offer educational support for students who have been suspended or expelled from school. Additionally, through educational support, entrepreneurial instruction, and faith based programming, Rise Above seeks to meet the academic, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of every student.
