Youth Rise Texas recognizes and uplifts that in order for young people to engage at school and within their communities, we must first meet their mental health and healing needs. We engage in healing justice work with our three program areas each of which attempts to respond to and intervene around trauma and structural violence in ways that allow for collective healing practices and individual growth.

We have developed an organizing methodology, strategy and infrastructure to create a youth-centered agenda that prepares us for the next 10 years of transformative change.

At Youth Rise Texas, we work to create a leadership development pipeline that will put youth at the forefront of winning demands that safeguard and realize rights.  We want to end Parental Removal and to end the systems that criminalize POC and the undocumented.
