Root Down Rise Up is an experiential, out-of school program that fosters self-discovery, nature connection, and community leadership in young women*. The program is open to high school sophomores, juniors, and senior girls in the Portland Metro Area.
Through engaging, relevant, and supportive experiences, we encourage participants to take action in their lives and communities in ways that promote an environmentally sustainable, socially just, and spiritually fulfilling world.
We believe that every young woman has unique gifts and strengths that are necessary for addressing the numerous challenges that we face during this unique moment in human history.
In our program, young women will root down to their authentic selves and do so in supportive spaces with peers, mentors, and the natural world. Through deepening their connection to self and others, we aim to empower participants to rise up and take part in the movement toward a healthier, happier future for all.
*We do not discriminate on the basis of gender identity or degree of gender conformity. Any self-identified woman is welcome in our program.
