Who We Are
RYSE was created in November 2017 by a team of 5 Co-Founders who joined forces after working individually with local youth refugees and decided to collaborate their efforts to have a more positive impact and reach a larger audience.
We currently support over 150 youth refugees from 24 different countries. We do this with the support of over 100 volunteers.

Our mission is to inspire positive development in youth refugees and help them to discover their true potential through support and empowerment.
We strive to promote the integration of youth refugees in to the job market in Luxembourg by breaking down the barriers facing refugees and encouraging inclusion which benefits refugees and the local community alike.
We aim to create a positive effect on the future generations both in Luxembourg and globally by helping refugees determine their goals and ambitions and identifying clear pathways to success.
Our three pillar approach
Our objective is to provide guidance and support to all our beneficiaries in order to help them find their place on the labor market. To achieve our mission and key accomplishment, we focus on a 3 pillar approach:
Mentoring Program: on-to-one matches between citizens and the RYSE beneficiaries. Tailored, individual support to help our mentees integrate and work towards achieving their goals and ambitions.
Network: volunteering opportunities for mentees to help them gain local work experience through volunteering with co-operative businesses and other local services.
RecruitME: a new project which is being developed to link our mentees with local employers, empower them and help them prepare to access the job market.
