Rise Up, Ride Out

A Summertime Youth Programming Collaborative 

Rise Up, Ride Out uses a goal setting framework to develop social-emotionally intelligent learners through sports and recreation opportunities. Setting goals for life!

Who We Are

Rise Up Ride Out (RURO), is a team of three youth-centered nonprofits working together to provide a health-wellness summer program for Baltimore City youth.We believe that achieving health and wellness requires one to define goals in respect to physical fitness, social awareness and emotional control. Our comprehensive program is designed to promote autonomy by encouraging and instilling transferable life skills. 

 

Why enroll your child in Rise up Ride out? How are we different?


Some gyms focus is on the individual's ability to reach physical fitness goals and overlook the person’s ability to create healthy new habits to support their own whole body health system, i.e. How to seek support from a peer or identify tools of motivation. On the other hand, youth-centered non-profits tend to focus on the member's social or academic development and neglect the benefits of physical fitness. Our program directly and intentionally blends  all of these components to address the whole body wellness of our youth members.    

Hygiene Protocol

To ensure the safety of our participants, staff, and the greater community, this program follows a rigorous hygiene protocol. 70% of the program will be hosted on a virtual platform and youth will be expected to participate online and in-person. Once a week youth members will be able to participate in a 2 hour group bike ride, Corner Team activity, and MissionFit activity, where they will be required to record their temperatures, maintain their social distance, wear masks, and wash their hands frequently.
