RISE Hubs

Salāmun ʿalaykum,

May Allah bless you and your family. 

RISE Hubs are an opportunity for our RISE Online families to gather on a regular basis to provide the students at RISE Online with religious, social, and academic enrichment. The RISE Hubs will be using programs created by the RISE Online team and in line with the mission and vision of the school.  Hubs will be established in communities of our RISE Online families who are interested in providing this program for their children. 

 

A learning coach will be identified as the RISE Hub Coordinator (RHC), and will be in communication with the Academic Coordinator. The RHC will be responsible for facilitating and organizing the programs and maintaining the finances of the local hub.

 

A RISE Hub benefits the whole community! RISE Online students can spend time together while sharing their love of learning and the Ahlul Bayt. RISE Hubs located in centers will encourage students participating in local programming while enjoying time with their friends.
