Teen UpRise

2013 Primary Partner

Teen UpRise is a youth ministry in the Roxborough neighborhood of Philadelphia which welcomes youth into a positive, healthy, encouraging and Christian environment where they can grow and advance both personally and educationally. 

The mission of Teen UpRise is:

    To open teens’ ears to the encouragement of mentors,
    Their eyes to a better future,
    And their hearts to the love of God.

Teen UpRise offers mentoring and programming in spiritual, education, emotional, physical and financial topics through and after school program, field trips and life-enrichment experiences.  Teen UpRise partners with Arcadia College and St. Martin’s church among others to provide real opportunity for young people at risk. St. Martin’s Champion for Teen UpRise is parishioner Grace McGinley.
