Founded in 1986, ARISE is a not-for-profit resource that “researches, writes, creates and produces books, posters, videos and other educational materials for use by those who teach and oversee troubled and underserved youth.” They claim they have trained and certified over 3,000 instructors who have then taught over 2,000,000 documented hours of their Life-Management Skills Lessons to more than 500,000 at-risk youth.

The goal of their curriculum and staff training is to provide troubled and underserved youth with easy-to-understand and interactive life-management lessons. They claim that their professional life-skills training course “can reduce staff turnover, lessen staff stress, improve staff communication skills, reduce liability exposure” and can provide the knowledge “to easily teach ARISE social skills to often reluctant students with serious behavior problems.” A full list of their publications and training courses can be found on their web site.
