Hope Rising Young Professionals


Hope Rising launched a Young Professionals group in 2021 to spread awareness about the growing epidemic of child sex-trafficking in our region and to enroll a broad section of the young professional community in making an impact on the hope and healing of youth who have been recovered from exploitation and are now fostered through Hope Rising.  

Hope Rising Young Professionals will be invited to a signature information program each year and will be encouraged to use their social networks to promote various third-party fundraising events in the spring and fall.  These events will be held in restaurants and other venues willing to donate a percent of sales to Hope Rising's work.

We look forward to welcoming inviduals who want to make an impact in their communities by becoming educated on current issues related to the growing crime of sexual exploitation of minor children and by spreading the good news of the possibility for hope and healing for survivors.  

How to get involved:

  • Attend our educational events and share what you learn with your friends and family.
  • Promote Hope Rising third-party events on your social networks and organize a group of friends to patronize participating venues.
  • Make an outright gift to Hope Rising to support our youth in care and high-impact therapeutic programs such as Equine Therapy and Art Therapy.
  • Take advantage of your corporate matching gift benefits and use your match for Hope Rising.
  • Share your ideas and questions @ youngprofessionals@hoperisingusa.org
