Rise UP Youth Employment provides services to youth aged 15 - 25 who face barriers to employment. The program was launched in 2015 after seeing a need for supportive employment for marginalized youth.
Rise UP provides one-to-one outreach support to help youth meet their employment goals. Employment Counsellors help with such things as resume building, interview skills, and on-the-job coaching, and work with most youth for between 4 - 6 months.
Thanks to the generosity of funders, Rise UP can offer this program at no cost to participants.

Our Thrive team acknowledges that our agency stands and works on the unceded Lək̓ʷəŋən territory of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. We also acknowledge the five W̱SÁNEĆ communities: W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip), BOḰEĆEN (Pauquachin), SȾÁUTW̱,(Tsawout) W̱SIKEM (Tseycum) and MÁLEXEȽ (Malahat), as well as the Sc'ianew (Beecher Bay), T’Sou-ke, and Pacheedaht Nations and the Spune’laxutth’ (Penelekut) tribe where our work extends. We are committed to acknowledging our relationship with these unceded lands and communities, at staff and Board meetings, and during our hosted events. We encourage the evolving learning and awareness of our staff, Board, and the Thrive community, discovering and striving for meaning and personal connection within each acknowledgement.Statement of Reconciliation
