Learning to deal with life's challenges.

Life in transition? What now? RISE Workshops – Reaching Into Self Empowerment – can help you figure out the next steps.

Led by volunteers, RISE Workshops are ideal for women who are:

  • In transition
  • Learning to build confidence and overcome obstacles
  • Contemplating a life change
  • Seeking re-entry into the workforce
  • Looking to increase their self-esteem

As a RISE participant, you will:

  • Improve your coping skills
  • Tap into your talent
  • Gain strength from past experiences
  • Learn how to make healthy decisions
  • Recognize and extinguish self-defeating thoughts
  • Silence your inner critic
