What is RiseUP!?
Thrive Social Services (formerly Phoenix Human Services) launched the Rise Up Youth Employment Program in 2015 after seeing a need for supportive employment for marginalized youth with barriers to employment. The Rise Up Youth Employment Program provides one-to-one outreach support to help youth meet their employment goals.
Employment Counsellors will work with most youth between 4 to 6 months and provide a variety of services including résumé building, interview skills, and on the job coaching. Thanks to the generosity of funders, Phoenix Human Services is pleased to offer this program at no cost to participants.
