RISE Tutoring Classes

RISE supports refugee and asylum seeker communities to meet their educational needs by offering advice and personalised guidance about the various educational pathways available.

RISE has developed a tutoring project that fills a gap in the community and complements the other programs within RISE’s education and training portfolio. Instead of concentrating on beginner’s English, RISE has chosen to deliver a pre-intermediate programe with an academic slant so that students with some English language skills will be able to improve to the level required to interact with the larger Australian society and either obtains employment or further their studies. The program also helps students to develop their analytical and communication skills, so they are better able to utilise their English language knowledge.

Classes will be held at ‘the RISE Hub’, a multi-purpose space run by RISE situated in central Melbourne.

To apply to the ESL tutoring, please email or call us at 03 9639 8623.

Cypher Hip Hop Workshops

RISE (Refugees, Survivors and Ex-detainees) is excited to announce launch of a community based recording studio in November as part of the RISE Cypher Project.

The RISE music studio will give opportunities to aspiring young artists to positively express themselves and develop industry skills in a safe and supportive environment.

With the assistance of our talented and professional staff, we hope to provide training, artistic mentoring, sound engineering and production facilities for young people to professionally record, market and distribute their music.

The need for this project arose from RISE’s consultations with migrant and refugee communities. One of the most common needs identified by young people is for their voice to be heard, recognised and acknowledged in addressing the various challenges they face.

As such this program is aimed at empowering participants with the knowledge, skills and tools to positively express their own identities within the context of their environment. The recording space will establish a positive relationship between participants & instructors, thereby enabling positive social skills and artistic mentorship to grow.
