How Phoenix Rising Helped Me

“When a kid or young adult is lost and confused, thinking that life is a setup for failure because the public schools gave up on us, we have people like Phoenix Rising that help us have faith in humanity again… The wonderful things you guys gave us, I wish everyone could experience.”

“PR helped me graduate even if it seemed impossible. The teachers have a unique and wonderful way to help you achieve your goals.”

My Favorite Thing

“One of my favorite things was being able to work one on one with the teachers and getting the help I needed.”

“Everything… The snacks during passing period. Yoga. And all the staff.”

Why Phoenix Rising Is Important to Me

“I felt accepted. I felt equal. I felt important.”
