Since 1996, when Neighbors In Ministry launched the Rise & Shine year-round after school program, we have been helping economically disadvantaged and racial minority children learn -- about the fundamental importance of education, about their community and culture, and about themselves. 

Our approach is founded on teamwork and collaboration. The board of directors and staff work together to establish and maintain a blueprint for helping our scholars succeed, both in the classroom and in life. Our wonderful, dedicated volunteers give tirelessly of themselves to teach and coach and support the children they tutor. And parents, grandparents, and guardians reinforce these efforts. Together, we are breaking down barriers and building community.
