What are The Rise Young Friends and The Rise Young Professionals Board?

The Rise Young Friends

is a membership group supporting the Rise YPs with a small investment and less commitment. It’s also mandatory if you would like to be considered for the board. You will get access to some great social events plus you will support an active group of young people who really care about revitalization in St. Louis!

The Rise Young Professionals Board

is a group of enthusiastic young talent on its way to becoming a powerful force for advocating revitalization in St. Louis. Started in 2013, the Rise YP Board is a volunteer-run, working board, consisting of 25 to 30 young professionals, who apply, are selected and commit to volunteer for a one-year term. The primary mission of the board is awareness of Rise and our work in the community, fundraising to support the mission of Rise, and utilizing our skills in the community to assist neighborhoods with a variety of projects.

Accomplishments

The Rise Young Professionals have many accomplishments and milestones since the inception of the group in 2013. Here are a few highlights:

  • Raised over $25,000 to support revitalization in St. Louis
  • Hosted a “Roast and Toast” event in 2014
  • Wrote a New Markets Tax Credit application for Rise in 2014
  • Promoted Rise with an exhibitor booth at St. Louis Earth Day in 2014
  • Hosted a Healthy Communities Panel discussion in 2015
  • Hosted 3 Consecutive Trivia Nights since 2016
  • Hosted several happy hour events with featured speakers from the community development sector of St. Louis
  • Are currently working on an updated neighborhood marketing plan/document capturing the history of both the St. Louis Place and JeffVanderLou neighborhoods for North Newstead Association
