Need Students to Apply - RISE for Youth Program -March 1st Application Deadline

 The application process is open and closes March 1st so we need students to quickly apply!

 At a high level, the RISE for Youth program is designed to help Black and underrepresented students transform themselves from youth with potential to competitive and empowered talent entering the workforce. The program aims to create new pathways for success by providing students with critical educational and leadership skills, training and long-term mentoring for successful careers in health care, science and beyond. 


RISE Up is a four-week program that provides employment preparation for post-secondary education students. RISE High is a four-week program that engages high school juniors and seniors in a pre-college readiness program designed to enhance opportunities for post-secondary education and entry into the workforce.  Students will receive a $960 stipend to cover the cost of not working so they can more fully participate. The Rochester Branch of the NAACP along with a consortium of our trusted community partners such as Diversity Council and others will help in the selection of students into the program.

About Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community,'s  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. could be an interesting first step.
