Support Us Today - Visit Our Online Store

Purchase an inspirational casual wear today.  Visit our online Youth Rising store  (click here).  For every $1.00 you spend about $.30 helps us to continue to operate.  We had to stop our after school programs as a result of the COVID 19 Pandemic, and this caused a 50% loss in revenue.  We used this revenue to lease space for our programs, stipends for our program graduates, and other critical expenses.  Thank you in advance for your online purchase.
