Mission

Youth Rise Texas’ mission is to uplift the voices of young people harmed by parental criminalization and deportation so that they may heal, act for change, and build compassionate communities. We aim to develop resilience and pipelines to opportunities in education, leadership, and employment when families are separated by criminalization, detention and deportation. Further, our organization is led by the youth we serve to create and support spaces that safeguard their lives.

Youth Rise Texas Programming Summary

YRTX serves gender oppressed, BIPOC youth between the ages of 14 and 22 whose parents have been removed from the home due to criminalization, detention, or deportation. YRTX fills a gap in services in the absence of a protocol initiated by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, federal immigration enforcement or the AISD when a young person loses a parent to criminalization, detention, or deportation.

Our multi-pronged approach:
-Provides peer support for directly impacted youth to access emotional wellness, a prerequisite for their success during/after high school, through restorative justice practices
-Delivers training to impacted youth and their peers to get invested, engaged and active in their communities via our proprietary curricula which are facilitated by youth organizers who are graduates of our program
-Creates pipelines to leadership for impacted youth who become eligible for internships and jobs with YRTX once completing one year of the program
-Creates a visible presence in high schools in order to challenge narratives of criminality and shame through campus-wide events

Youth Rise Texas works with youth to build power through three program areas: 1) Healing Justice; 2) When We Vote; and 3) #StayWoke. Our Healing Justice programs focus on a peer/near-peer approach to addressing trauma. Within this pillar are two programs: Still We Rise and our Y’all Good? We Good Peer-Led Healing Circles. Still We Rise is a peer facilitated healing space that supports youth acquisition of self/community-care skills. Delivered in high school campuses during the school year, Still We Rise is based on a proprietary 19 module curriculum. Our Y’all Good? We Good Peer-Led Healing Circles are co-facilitated by youth organizers and UT Social Work students.

Our second program pillar offers an opportunity for our youth to take action. When We Vote is a multi-year program that seeks to create a leadership development pipeline that will put youth at the forefront of safeguarding or realizing rights. When We Vote supports these aims through campaign implementation, leadership institutes and sustained voter education and mobilization work. Via When We Vote, high school youth of color develop their organizing praxis, advocacy and leadership skills, and explore the root causes of injustices in their communities. During election seasons, youth ages 17 to 24 center their organizing efforts around nonpartisan voter registration and GOTV efforts focusing on Austin’s high school youth of color.
