About Rise

Connecting talented young people and supporting them for life as they build a better world

COVID-19. Climate change. Racial justice. Gender equality. Future of work.

The world’s most important problems will be solved by tomorrow’s leaders.

Yet too often, the most talented people never realize their full potential for global impact. 

Rise is on a mission to change that.

15-17 year olds from around the world

If you are between the ages of 15 and 17, from any country with any background, you can apply to Rise. 

Whether you’re interested in science, art, community organizing, or any other topic, we want to hear from you.

The Rise Community

Everyone who applies joins the Rise global community. You’ll have access to free online courses and opportunities from our partners around the world.

During the application process, you will create a significant project and build professional and personal skills.

Rise Global Winners

Each year, 100 Rise Global Winners will receive a lifetime of benefits as they use their talents to build a better world.

The next century’s changemakers

We know that at 15 years old, not everyone knows exactly how they will make a difference in their lifetime.

So we want to be there for the most talented young people as they figure it out, especially those who need additional support to make their ideas a reality. 

Ultimately, we hope Rise will help exceptional people better serve others for the next century.
