Rising Youth-Made with a purpose,
Raised with Principles and Values

Rising Youth

Empowering parents,  educators and community members,  with the resources and knowledge to choose an education platform that supports individual family values, and encourages community connections. 

Education takes on many forms; private, home, pod, micro, magnet, charter and public education.

At Rising Youth, we want to work on education at a community level.

Parents, teachers, and others in our communities who have a more conservative approach to living, are often made to feel like the minority in the public school system.

Because of this, we often remain silent and do not speak up or against when our kids are exposed to biased opinions and theories on controversial topics within the public school system.

At Rising Youth we strive to help create an educational environment that empowers parents and care givers to have more of an impact on what our children are exposed to, while also having a more hands on approach to addressing the needs of each individual child.  

Rising Youth-  is a place for parents, teachers and concerned citizens, to speak out on education related issues and work together to find real solutions. 

We share ideas, resources and offer support for a solid education for all children.

We strive to make sure that everyone has an understanding about what platforms, tools, and resources are available so that each individual can choose the one that best supports the unique needs of each child and household.

Founder - Jen

I am a conservative mother of three and grandmother of two amazing littles. 

Previously on the school board of a local charter school, and child care provider for over 15 years.

Being the State Director of Minnesota Rising opened my eyes to a lot of horrible things happening in our state and within the education system.  I aim to share that knowledge and provide resources to other concerned parents, so that they can make the absolute best choices for their children. 

I firmly believe this country belongs to the next generation.  So lets make sure we raise them with purpose, confidence and the education to be able to stand as the true American leaders.- Jen Leigh

striving to help create an environment that empowers parents and caregivers to have an impact and choice as to what their children are being exposed to while in the classroom.  I recognize that the "one size fits all" approach to education is failing many students. 

It is time to restructure education on a community level.
