Relevant Issues and Social Empowerment: RISE 2019 

TRC Flushing will begin a new program with a workshop series called Relevant Issues and Social Empowerment (RISE). Each month, teens will be able to learn about different relevant issues that impact our lives and our community such as  body image, relationships, leadership, stress management, cultural appreciation, and gender identity.
