Yet! Over the course of 22 weeks as a RISE Ambassador, you will develop skills, learn about community engagement, and work with your peers to build something meaningful together.  The theme of this  RISE cohort is Gender Inclusion. For us, gender inclusion is about understanding and working to remove the barriers faced by folks with marginalized gender identities (i.e. two-spirit, trans, non-binary, women, etc).

There is a mandatory virtual retreat February 18-21, 2021. Youth ambassadors have to commit 6 hours a week, which includes a weekly 3 hour meeting one evening per week in your city.
