OUR PURPOSE:

The purpose of this collaboration is to support our children and youth by providing a safe and positive place for them to grow and discover the greatness in each of them. 


We Rise mobilizes parents, legislators, school officials, and community stakeholders in a unified effort to provide all resources and services needed to combat the school-to-prison pipeline as well as other obstacles and negative forces that would thwart our children's path to Greatness. 

Here at We Rise Inkster Collaborative, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2000, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress. Learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see.
