Thank You! The RIISE Roadmap Workshop Series™




Thank you to all who participated in our RIISE Roadmap Workshop Series™. Many of you went out of your way to make it, traveling distances, bracing through hard rain, and re-arranging schedules. We were honored by your participation. A big shout out to this year’s host school – Riverdale Country School!

What participants had to say:

“Thanks, so much, for running the workshops.  A definite home run!
The sessions were invaluable and I started looking forward to them.  What am I going to do with my free time this coming Wednesday?  
I have to say, that in addition to the information that was shared, the events attracted a great group of people.  The energy was consistently positive and we all came to put in the work and to be real about it! 
You are appreciated.  Thank you for the work that you do with RIISE and for us aspirant indy families.”


“Thank you very much for the open candor last night. I really appreciated you taking the time to create such an inviting space to answer some very relevant questions regarding the realities.
I’ve taken three very important things from the conversation – 
1 – Teach your children to advocate for themselves. I’m a huge advocate for my children. But the next step is teaching them to do it for themselves.
2 – They (us) will need to be culturally competent – in and outside of school.
3 – Don’t get caught up on what you can’t provide. Don’t let it break you down. 
You guys are so positive and really look at all that you are blessed with. That mindset is crucial for our children to see in us, so that they can maneuver through this journey.”
