Joining forces with local schools and communities to foster effective and interactive education and community
Rising Minds works in partnership with locally-founded, locally run initiatives to support communities in identifying and addressing their needs. We provide on-the-ground assistance in the form of trainings, consultant-style guidance and volunteer facilitation. Through Rising Minds’ proactive involvement we are reinforcing a sense of self- respect, instilling a foundation of accountability, and ensuring the sustainability of our impact.

In communities located more than 45 minutes from emergency response care, there is a pressing need for emergency response training. The primary goal of Rising Minds’ first-aid and CPR program is to provide the skills for immediate response to life-threatening situations, such as choking.
