Our Mission is Simple

Sweet Generation RISE trains and hires at-risk teens and young adults ages 16 to 24. We work with both at-risk high school students and disconnected out-of-school youth, that have limited access to employment opportunities and training.

RISE serves economically distressed communities - our target communities encompass both under-resourced or under-performing high schools and high-need neighborhoods exhibiting poverty and resource deprivation.

By providing meaningful training in job-readiness, entrepreneurship and social-emotional development we support our participants in leading healthy, positive lives, reduce the risk of negative life outcomes and have tremendous positive economic impact on under-resourced NYC communities.

Interested in Partnering With Us?

We work with a variety of programs serving youth ages 16-24.  Our partners must have an established internship program that include compensation for participants (either monetary or school credit). It is our goal to provide young people with real world experience, and we believe compensation for their work is not only the right thing to do, but helps teach responsibility and financial management. To inquire about developing a partnership with Sweet Generation, please contact rise@sweetgeneration.org.

Looking For a Donation?

We get a very large number of donation and sponsorship requests and have a rigorous review process to determine which organizations and events we are able to support in this way. While Sweet Generation would love to be able to donate to all organizations doing mission driven work, we are currently not accepting inquiries for donations.
