Every Gift Counts

Payment Resources Space Volunteers


For the past several years, researchers have expressed a decline in teens' social, academic, and mental performance.

For instance, the National Center for Education Statistics reports that students' math and reading scores have declined since pre-pandemic.

In addition, research shows that two million high school students nation-wide have dropped out of school since 2020.

Alarmingly, a 2018 global study concludes that our teens and adolescents are wrestling with a silent crisis that often triggers depression, low self-esteem, and even suicide.  Furthermore, this crisis has its root in loneliness.

If you can recall a time when you felt lonely and alone, then you can empathize with young people who say they feel lonely and sad because they have no one to talk to or no one to understand them.

For such a time as this, Rising Urban Leaders Enterprise has positioned itself in this community to be a part of the solution.

Our passion for the success of our teens is at the core of everything we do.

For this reason, we are asking the community for donations of all kinds such as:

  • Dollars for expenses
  • Event Space for meetings
  • Food for refreshments
  • Equipment for video recording
  • Speakers for sharing   

Please realize that your financial donation will be used to offset expenses that are needed to achieve our mission.  In addition, since RULE is a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization, your donation is tax deductible.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!

In Solidarity,

Denise Blackwood
