We empower youth to rise through mentoring
Our mission is to inspire youth to discover their gifts and talents from GOD by taking action, with particular attention to the needs of self-empowerment and mentorship. Through mentoring and focusing on individuals’ well-being and strengths, a change of mindset will occur and help change their mindsets, create their lives and impact their surrounding community regardless of their circumstances.
As our mentees graduate from the 12 week curriculum, they enter their community equipped with powerful habits for life success, a vision for their future, and goals that are broken down into obtainable benchmarks.
ARISE Project For Humanity gives young people the encouragement and tools to think of themselves, not just now, but to focus on their future selves. We charge our teens to redirect their focus on their dreams and aspirations to set them on the path of fulfilling their purpose.
All activities, lessons, discussions, and challenges are designed to inspire, motivate, and push our students toward a PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE. Young people engage with mentors and other young their age in a positive environment. They are surrounded with mentors that truly care. We have Haitians mentoring Haitians so that the power can come within it's own country.
Preventing Child Sex-Trafficking
Over the past five years, human traffickers exploit domestic and foreign victims in Haiti, and traffickers exploit victims from Haiti abroad. Most of Haiti’s trafficking cases involve children in forced labor in domestic service, commonly called restavek, who often are physically abused, receive no payment for services rendered, and have significantly lower school enrollment rates. Between 150,000 and 300,000 children worked in domestic servitude. Many children flee these situations and become street children, facing further risk of re-trafficking. Only 105 of the total 754 orphanages housing 23,723 children were either licensed or becoming officially licensed, and 398 were considered high-risk for child safety.
AT ARISE Project For Humanity, we are committed to prevent child sex trafficking in the first place by teaching our youth key principles that will help protect this nation and keep them safe.
Building Community Leaders
We often hear the saying that children are our future. But what happens when children take the troubled path, succumbing to crime, drug addiction or self-destruction? If children are our future, isn’t it our responsibility to shape our future by shaping our youth? We can do that through mentorship. We believe that Mentoring is the key to help our youth change their mindset, create their life and impact their community.
