Founded in 2010, Boston Rising’s mission is to end the cycle of intergenerational poverty in Boston and help all of us rise and achieve the best version of ourselves. By investing in people-centered programs and leaders, Boston Rising focuses its efforts on the tools necessary for rising: a quality education, a good job, and the right social connections. That focus -- particularly on family strengths and social networks, an area often overlooked in philanthropic efforts -- is critical to enabling a shift from poverty to economic security and helping each person to succeed according to his or her own goals and ambitions. Boston Rising's latest initiative, the Rising Class project, tells stories of rising as a celebration of individual human potential and self-determination.
