What is S.K.I.A.?
S.K.I.A., Sending Kids Into Action, is Rise Up’s after school program for students in kindergarten through 6th grade.
Our program is Monday-Friday and we serve students from Mountain View, North Side, Fairmont, and Indian Trail.
Our students are brought to The Refuge from school where they are given a snack, get help with their homework, have a special class each day, and are fed a healthy dinner.
The Purpose of S.K.I.A.
To impact the academic, social, and emotional needs of students from low income homes by providing mentoring, tutoring, homework assistance, enrichment activities, outings, and life skill training.
