Rising Stars is Rising Sons' new after-school program for young men in the inner-city communities.  The program begins September 27th at South Philly High School.

Rising Sons believes youth need to spend their time being involved in their school and in the community. The program benefits participants with the influence of positive role models, and also allows their voices to be heard, giving them opportunities to change their community. All Rising Stars members will build their leadership capabilities, improve academic performance, and determine potential career paths. 

The curriculum for Rising Stars includes: 
  • Team Building
  • Movies / Music
  • Group Discussions
  • Resume Building 
  • Internships
  • Planning for College and Applying
  • Talent Shows / Theater Performances / Film Production / Art Exhibits
  • Community Service
  • Student-Planned Events & Fundraising
