R.I.S.E. Boys & Girls Club

Boys and Girls Clubs of Columbus

PURPOSE

Since opening in 2014, the R.I.S.E. Club has become a safe and fun destination for teens in Weinland Park—and demand is growing! Help us renovate and expand the R.I.S.E. Boys & Girls Club by 2,500 square feet to serve more children and teens!

THIS BETTER TOGETHER PROJECT IS COMPLETE THANKS TO YOUR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS!
GOAL $7,000
RAISED 100%

Thank you for transforming the R.I.S.E. Club!

As the R.I.S.E. Club has grown, so have the demands of the Weinland Park neighborhood it serves. Every day, younger siblings of teen members come knocking on the door, seeking a meal and a safe place to hang out. Without expanding program space, many had to be turned away. To meet these needs, the R.I.S.E. Club identified a larger space at the former Second Avenue School, but the new location had areas that were damaged and unusable. With your help, a deteriorated basement was transformed into a bright, welcoming destination that now serves a total of 85 youth each day.

“The R.I.S.E. Boys & Girls Club is the safest place in the neighborhood. Thank you for giving us a new home that is bigger and more hip.”


— Tejean, A 15-year-old member of the R.I.S.E. Club
