The RYSE Center, located in Richmond California is currently under construction.
RYSE Commons will be a hub for healing, personal development, play, expression, incubating ideas, performances, art, launching businesses, exploring technology, connecting with universities and partners.
The expansion will:
- Increase our indoor/outdoor healing-oriented programming by 300%
- Create new youth-centered sanctuary and healing spaces that includes increased access to primary care and mental health services
- Support community transformation by creating additional space to engage partners in shared educational opportunities
- Increase our capacity to co-house critical support programs and services with community and systems partners
- Provide access to high-quality facilities for technology exploration, workforce development, and media production
- Increase opportunities to engage parents, guardians, and extended support systems
- Expand our age range for youth ages 11 – 24
After nine years on the Richmond landscape, the RYSE Youth Center is a place where integral parts of a hurting and glorious city come to shed conflict so that they may seek and create solutions. It took a team to build the Center from the ground up and to sow seeds toward sustainability. It took the team, the city, a small squad of investors, and a staff dedicated to seeing out a vision developed and set by young people. It took years of risks, trials, errors, and successes to get where they are today.
