RISE Program

 

 

What it is:  RISE stands for Role Models Impacting Student Excellence. It is a community program where students who stand out among their peers and who are recommended as a role models of healthy living and good choices, are selected to be an example to their peers in the community.

 

 Who is eligible to apply: Youth in who will be entering grades 6-12 in the 2016-2017 school year.  We are not necessarily looking for the most well rounded youth/students in your school or organization, or even one you would currently describe as a leader.  Rather we are looking for students who are making positive life choices concerning alcohol and drugs, and who currently are or may have the potential to influence others by their choices.  

  

How it will be used: The RISE representatives will appear in a community campaign that promotes the value of positive peer influence. Mall ads, posters, and other media promotions will be made available to area schools and throughout the community. The RISE representatives will be introduced to the community at the Red Ribbon Breakfast in October. 

 

What we hope it will accomplish: Each year new RISE students will be selected from schools and other organizations in Tippecanoe County.  We hope what this program will accomplish is:

 

  • Encourage youth to strive for healthy living and to make good choices, as it recognizes and rewards students for making good decisions.
  • Combat the myth that the majority of youth are doing drugs and alcohol and enforce a positive perception of life without drugs and alcohol.
  • Give youth the opportunity to hear from a peer positive perspectives and benefits of making good decisions as well as encourage positive trend setting.
