Social & Environmental Responsibility

The Rising Youth Center believes that social and environmental responsibility should be an integral part of not only running an organization, but also in what we teach the young people we work with. We are completely committed to running our organization with a strong commitment to reducing waste and energy to minimize our carbon foot print as well as using recycled and repurposed materials.

It is our goal to make the Center as environmentally friendly as possible. This includes using low flow water fixtures, recycling. The center will also include bottle refilling stations for youth to fill up their reusable bottles.

Helping the community through service projects is an important part of our efforts, not only because we feel dedicated to bettering the community in which we serve, but also because it has been proven that young people who participate in community service projects are less likely to use drugs.
