For Teens/Unaccompanied Youth

If you’re living on your own, staying with friends or relatives, or just moving around a lot, Project Rise can help. We assist teenagers and unaccompanied youth so they stay on track in school and in life. We do this by providing assistance and a variety of resources.

Understanding your rights

You may qualify for certain rights when it comes to your education. Project Rise can help you understand these rights. We can also assist you with enrollment, attendance and transportation services.

Help at school

Through Project Rise, you will have access to an academic advocate. Advocates are assigned to specific schools in the Akron Public Schools district. Your academic advocate can check in with you on the days they are at your school and can connect you with helpful resources.

To contact your assigned advocate, please call 330.761.3087.

Assistance and resources

Project Rise has many partners that provide food, clothing, shelter and other necessities to our participants. As a Project Rise student, you will have access to such resources. We will also provide you with helpful information to guide you to other resources and services.
