INSPIRING IMAGINATION.

IMPROVING LITERACY RATES.

This foundation, created by Generation Z, aims to inspire the next

generation—known as Generation Alpha—to wise up and rise up.

 

At Wise Up to Rise Up Foundation, we are dedicated to improving literacy rates through community, creativity, and collaboration. It's all about uniting communities, artists, educators, visionaries, and volunteers to spark a love for learning, imagination, creativity, and literary works in the next generation, especially in underserved areas.

With sponsorships and partnerships from Google, Microsoft, Canva, HP, Zoom, Walgreens, Michaels, Grammarly, Monday.com, HEB, Freddy’s, BJ’s Brewhouse, and others, we leverage our relationships and resources to create new opportunities for young visionaries to be inspired.

One of our flagship initiatives is the Wise Up to Rise Up Awards, an annual event designed to leverage the power of recognition for uplifting and inspiring the community. This initiative focuses on celebrating the accomplishments and potential of the next generation, with the aim of motivating and incentivizing youth excellence while nurturing a supportive community that acknowledges and applauds each individual's distinctive contributions. The awards were specifically designed to broaden opportunities for young visionaries in both Generation Z and Generation Alpha, from underserved areas of Houston, Texas, ensuring they feel valued, seen, and heard within the community.

The Wise Up to Rise Up Awards celebrate various achievements: Academic Excellence for excelling academically and contributing to the community; Artistic & Design Achievement for creativity in arts and design; Authorship & Literary Achievement for young authors; Young Lifetime Achievement for remarkable accomplishments; Leadership & Service for leading community projects; and Innovation & Entrepreneurship for introducing new solutions.

To raise funds for community programs, including the Wise Up to Rise Up Awards, we are continuing our partnerships with BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse, Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, Chili's Grill & Bar, Gringo's Tex Mex, and other collaborators. These partnerships involve events like spirit nights, where a percentage of proceeds during a set period is donated to the foundation. Furthermore, we are selling Gold Lapel Pins and accepting contributions, grants, and donations through our website.

Moving forward, our aim is to inspire Generation Alpha, the group starting from 2010 onward from low-income backgrounds, to use community resources to reach their full potential and develop a love for learning, imagination, creativity, and literary works. This includes providing access to educational scholarships, mentorship programs, skill-building workshops, and opportunities for personal and professional growth. By empowering these young individuals with the tools and support they need, we seek to break the cycle of poverty and create a brighter future for the community. Success will be evident in the achievements of youth who publish books, create innovative concepts, design positive solutions, and demonstrate a passion for optimistic imagination after engaging with our foundation.
