At Rise Venture School, we believe in expanding the horizon for youth. Their minds are full of innovative ideas, and are constantly looking to spark change in the world around them. By bridging their imagination into a business venture, they can develop life skills to navigate this changing world, and overcome challenges. In the process, they are sharpening these important skills: Critical thinking, Communication, Creativity, Collaboration, Confidence, Compassion and Community awareness
It is our goal to develop and equip students with the tools they need to thrive in this evolving world. Entrepreneurship isn't only about building a business, in the process students acquire tools to tackle life's challenges.
