All of the Stanford Spring 2018 Class found their $20,000 grant to Ryse to be a good decision with a good outcome since it was able to help showcase the work of many youth artists. Located in Richmond, CA, Ryse creates safe spaces for young people to learn, heal, and transform their lives and communities. The organization values youth leadership in the pursuit of promoting justice in communities. The grant helped fund three showcase events put on by the Media, Arts & Culture Program.
