Project Rise is a Center for Economic & Workforce Development initiative at Kingsborough Community College, City University of New York. Project Rise provides educational, internship and employment services to young adults. Project Rise prepares participants for the GED®/TASC exam, supports the development of work readiness skills, and provides opportunities for participants to acquire gainful employment.
- We commit to create an environment where students feel supported in working towards their individual career and education goals, and are empowered to follow the life path they choose.
- We will encourage participants to advocate for themselves because we recognize that each student is an individual, that all students are creative, that all students need to succeed.
- We endeavor to respect the individuals’ needs, and provide support for the social, emotional, physical, intellectual development of each participant.
- We commit to providing participants with opportunities to prepare for the General Education Diploma Exam through regular instruction and practice.
- We aim to provide participants with linkage and referrals to acquire gainful employment, through internship, work readiness, and job placement.
- We strive to infuse our program with opportunities to further participants’ education through college credit offerings and industry recognized certifications.
- Ultimately, we aspire to shape life-long learners who actively participate in their communities and with the world at large.
