Respect. Integrity. Spirit. Experience.

About R.I.S.E.

R.I.S.E. (respect, integrity, spirit, & experience) is an initiative to fill Preble County with art and culture, allowing youth in the county to actively participate in the creative process while learning life skills, responsibility, teamwork, and community development. The teens meet weekly after school, working on projects that include skill building and allow for self-reflection, in addition to other community-based public art projects.

Supported by the Preble County Juvenile Court.
