What is Phoenix RISE? The Phoenix Youth Reach and Invest in Summer Employment (R.I.S.E.) program provides employment opportunities for youth, ages 16 to 24 years old, to learn the general aspects of working in a business during the summer months. This internship offers a pathway to building a stronger work ethic and making future connections.


Participating in R.I.S.E provides valuable insight into future career opportunities, work readiness training and helps create and build your future professional network.


Participants attend a mandatory two-day work readiness training to ensure they are prepared to enter the workforce and are paid $12.15/hr, 80 hours of work, 20 hours per week.
