At Rising To The Top, we believe that through mentor-ship and education, young athletes can achieve
their dreams no matter where they are today.
Rising To The Top
Rising To The Top is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to helping young athletes in the
Dominican Republic rise above and connect with financial and educational opportunities. We strive to
help these young athletes follow their dream and educate themselves with the help of scholarships.
Resources For A Better Future
Scholarships are the number one way that young athletes pay for higher education. Throughout Latin America, these scholarships literally save lives. We connect deserving athletes with scholarships that enable them to play the game they love while achieving educational milestones that are otherwise impossible.
Learn How To Code Program:
Our Learn How To Code program offers athletes a chance to learn one of the world’s most in-demand skills—coding. The iOS dev boot camp gives our student-athletes an alternate way to pursue a life beyond the streets. Our boot camp is taught by highly trained professionals skilled in the latest coding languages.
Laptop Donation Program:
Technology gives children in poverty a significant head start in their education. Unfortunately, access to basic technology like laptops is virtually impossible for these children. Our Laptop Donation Program sends your Mac computer donation to an iOS aspirant. Your donation gives a student access to life changing technology that furthers their education.
Coaching & Mentorship:
Our coaching and mentorship programs allow you to connect with talented young athletes. Become a volunteer to connect athletes to coaches and recruits looking for players with their talents. Bridge the gap and change a life, with our coaching and mentorship programs.
Rising To The Top believes every child deserves a future. In the U.S. and around the world, we give young athletes the opportunity to learn and get off the streets.
