The RISE Education Program provides students with an incarcerated parent with a dedicated mentor who will provide them with support out of the classroom for a 12 month period, building their confidence in social environments, or in the playground playing ball and talking about whatever is on their mind that day.
By becoming a positive role model to a student in need and ensuring that the child continues to engage in their educational needs away from the classroom through the Homework Program and organised school holiday activities, you are ensuring they don’t just survive a difficult time in their life but that they thrive. If required the School Suspension Program so the child can thrive though is a difficult time for them.
The program aims to increase school attendance, educational outcomes, self-esteem and decrease antisocial behaviour and school suspensions.
