"We do it for the youth."

OUR STORY

Our work started back in 2017 when our current Executive Director, Robin Tinnon, learned that less than 1% of our youth were enrolled in after school programming. She then began working to establish a safe and unapologetic space where our black youth could learn their history, increase their self advocacy, and become more positive participants in healthy relationships.

While running her 28 week curriculum, she quickly learned that in order to fully support the youth, we need to support the family unit as a whole. We All Rise was born into existence shortly after. We secured our nonprofit status in 2018 and opened our brick and mortar resource center in 2019. After a full year of our resource center being open to the public we have served over 800 individuals and families.
