April 21 and 22, DYRS and other community-based non-profits from across the District of Columbia will convene at the Eisenhower Foundation building at 1875 Connecticut Ave NW. Their mission: to learn how to inspire, educate and engage at-risk and incarcerated youth while teaching them vital life skills.

With help from a grant provided by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and the support of several members of congress including Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida’s 20th district, ARISE trainers will provide the future Life Skills Group Facilitators with the tools they need to reach troubled youth in their care. During this dynamic, energetic training session, participants will learn how to teach the youth to manage their anger, handle conflict, find and keep a job, avoid drugs, alcohol and gang life.

Most of these youth pray for something as simple as someone who will listen to them. ARISE Life Skills Group Facilitators listen to the learners and share their own life experiences with these young men and women. ARISE Life Skills lessons inspire positive behavioral changes in these troubled youth, often reshaping their lives. Armed with knowledge and life skills instead of guns, many youth Participating in the ARISE program become productive, law-abiding citizens. The training Plus ARISE'S easily understood curricula gives Group Facilitators everything they need to conduct their own interactive life skills program with confidence and compassion.

For over 20 years, ARISE has operated as a developer and publisher of Life Management Skills curricula and staff training programs. Designed to reach at-risk, incarcerated youth in detention centers and secure facilities, ARISE is also utilized as a powerful prevention tool for teenagers and young adults. ARISE programs consist of interactive group discussions and activities designed to break the ice quickly and grab the attention of even the most unmotivated participants. ARISE is particularly appropriate for youth with special requirements such as limited reading and/or writing ability and behavioral problems.
In its home state of Florida, ARISE were utilized for decades in the Miami-Dade School system. ARISE has forged a strong partnership with the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ). ARISE programs have been changing the lives of juvenile offenders in the Florida juvenile justice system since 1996. Its dynamic programs are currently being taught in over 70 facilities across the state, including the Salvation Army, Boys and Girls Clubs and alternative schools.

ARISE programs are also used in over 100 organizations in the District of Columbia, including public and charter schools, the D.C. Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services, the Metropolitan Police, the District of Columbia jail and the D.C. Superior Court Probation Department.

A 2007 study by Vanderbilt University and the University of Maryland showed that the cost of one offender with at least six police contacts from childhood to age 32 is $3,172,998. In other words, rescuing one youth from a life of crime saves taxpayers more than $3 million dollars.

Since ARISE (ariselife-skills.org) was established over two decades ago, it has trained and certified 5,284 Group Facilitators who have taught over 4,011,242 documented hours of ARISE life-skills lessons across the United States. ARISE is also being used in Canada, Jamaica, England, Australia, Bahamas, Bermuda, New Zealand, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Bosnia, Kazakhstan, Central Asia and the Kingdom of Bahrain. ARISE curricula are presently being translated into Kazakh, Russian. Requests have also come in from as far away as Pakistan to translate the material into Urdu and Punjabi.
