Why mentor youth
Every youth should enter our program ready for success, thrive once in the program, and be prepared to reach their full potential.
Change your mindset, create your life and impact your community
We inspire young leaders to be confident leaders through peer-to-peer mentoring. Our youth gain practical experience using leadership skills to plan and run weekly meetings for mentees. As they build a supportive network, our mentees learn valuable skills in a safe environment with peers who understand the difficulties and challenges they face.
Protect nation and keep children safe.
Together with partner like ourrescue, we continue to fight against child sex-trafficking though our mentoring program. 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
Empowering the youth with positive mindsets and applicable strategies for personal growth, obtainable goals, and entrepreneurial skillsets creates a powerful impact for change that is both sustainable and organic, creating leaders for Haiti’s future who will in turn invest in the rising generation and promote a “pay it forward” mentality.
Investing in startups / locals
We work closely with locals in communities we serve to help assist them with their projects and activities that we believe will help build sustainability for all.
The fight for a better world continues to evolve among this generation. We urge everyone to participate in rebuilding the kind of country we all want to see tomorrow.
More mentoring programs have been opened in communities across Haiti. That means, more Hope is being built in this nation. More young people will have access to a mentor, more dreams will be discovered, more change makers will be created, more opportunities for our youth to become who they were created to be...
We’re so grateful for our supporters, despite all the darkness that is going going on, they’re still believing that a better Haiti is possible and choose to stand with ariseprojects.org to help empower youth in Haiti.
