Goal Card

 

When students play their GOAL CARDS right, they’re rewarded for learning.

 

RISE’s Goal Card program teaches students in grades 5-12 how to set and achieve academic, financial and life goals. It provides structured
academic mentoring and 
support from adult volunteers, who lend their time and insight to provide ongoing encouragement and guidance.

As rewards for reaching their goals, students earn points redeemable for school supplies, gift cards and small electronic items. They can also choose to bank their points for even bigger rewards. Goal Card participants have been shown to outperform their peers, and more than 90 percent continuing on to higher education.

 

What’s up with RISE:
More than 600 students in Cummings Elementary, LaRose Elementary, Vance Middle School,  Booker T. Washington High School and Melrose High School are participating.


Goal Card incentives include gift cards, small electronic items and toys for children.

 

Goal Card is also on Global Giving. Click the 'Give Now' button to view our profile page.
