Our Philosophy

Through the implementation of educational programming within public and private institutions, we expand our efforts to share valuable information regarding holistic fulfillment. Through our signature programs, we create Experiences for Life by challenging and encouraging our participants to identify and fulfill their potential.  Also by facilitating innovative thinking and awareness, we expand the framework used for defining emotional, mental, physical and financial well-being.  Through a dynamic and accelerated learning approach to our well-being /wealth model, we provide practical tools for achieving success and becoming conscious creators in life. 

We are committed to being a catalyst and instrument of change in the lives of youth and young adults.  Our core belief is that individuals can positively impact the trajectory of their future by understanding and applying the ancient wisdom, which states:

  • Our habitual thoughts create the unfolding circumstances of our lives
  • Our thoughts create our reality

Rising Sun Programs® has adopted the nationally recognized, Positive Action curriculum.  This evidence-based curriculum complements our core beliefs echoing the principle: “positive thoughts lead to positive actions, positive actions lead to positive feelings about yourself, and positive feelings lead to more positive thoughts.”  The curriculum addresses life’s big questions such as:

“Who am I?”

“Who am I physically & intellectually?”

“Who am I as a manager of myself?”

The strategies used in Rising Sun Program’s educational offerings encourage participants to see life as a continual journey.  The outcome is a community of youth equipped with practical tools and critical thinking skills for confronting life’s experiences, challenges, and decisions.

Through exploration of practical ideas such as courageous living, visioning, and goal setting, we facilitate the physical, intellectual, social and emotional growth of our participants.  Our programs also explore intrapersonal and interpersonal responsibility, environmental stewardship and tapping into our inner power.  We understand that when youth are taught effective decision-making skills, they gain both the clarity and direction needed for successfully navigating life.
