Rising Blazers partners with various organizations in the community to serve local youth. Our service providers (subcontractors) serve youth who exhibit at least two priority, high-risk characteristics. Program services reflect a mix of intensive services that serve a limited number of youth (such as one-on-one mentoring) and lower intensity services that serve a higher number of youth (for example, group recreation).
