Our Programs

Rise Up! gives families 3 options as to the depth of relationship they want their kid to have with us, from mentoring, small groups, and our after school program.

Afterschool

S.K.I.A. (K-5th grade) and Next Level (6th grade and up) are our after school programs. We gather our kids from Indian Trail, Northside, Fairmont, Mt. View, Liberty Bell, and Science Hill to come together as a community at The Refuge daily for academic support, character training, and life skills opportunities.

Small Groups

Small Groups meet on a weekly basis. In these small groups, relationships are established and expanded over the students’ years of participation. Character training, job skills, social skills, manners, healthy relationships, and community service projects are just some of the topics discussed in these groups.

Mentoring

The Rise Up! Mentoring program is based on a one-to-one relationship between an adult volunteer and an under-resourced child. Simple things in life form our favorite memories and influence who we become. Mentors and kids alike find that simple things create truly amazing moments.
