Our Programs

RYSE Programs are designed to provide you with the tools to build a better city.


RYSE strives to be a space that meets the needs of Richmond and West Contra Costa County youth. For those who are unable to access the Center or whose needs are beyond the scope of our services, we offer these resources.
