RISE succeeds because it is a community-based effort designed to strengthen the educational system is the place it needs it most: in the low-income families whose kids suffer summer learning loss and consequently start out behind each fall. The RISE program is a partnership of concerned organizations who pitch in with individual assets to create this program.
