In 2017, Together We Own It and inPOWER Inc. came together under one mission; to serve local youth who remain disengaged from their community. With their mission in mind, together they founded Rise Up Community Center and vowed to "be the change". On May 29, 2018, Rise Up opened its doors in Westminster, Maryland.
Rise Up is a youth-driven program providing a safe space for youth to discover their strengths and abilities and to explore opportunities for success through community engagement, restorative practices and positive youth development.
We believe all youth can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
Our mission is to build stronger neighborhoods by empowering youth to become civically engaged and better educated.
We envision engaged communities where youth have the power to create opportunities for themselves to reach their full potential.
Support youth and families with referrals to community resources
Provide a safe space for our youth to be empowered through accountability and engagement.
