Readiness In Sport Education “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.” - Nelson Mandela

Our Mission

At R.I.S.E. (Readiness in Sports Education), we believe that sports have the power to change the world. We recognize that systemic inequities drive disparities and many youth are unable to pursue their employment dreams. Our mission is to fight for their equality. R.I.S.E. provides tuition-free learning opportunities and expert mentorship to high school students to prepare them for a career in sports marketing and media.
