I'RAISE Girls & Boys International Corporation is a proud BIPOC-led 501(c)(3) Non-profit Organization founded by Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Shanequa Moore in 2012. The organization was incorporated in 2013. And, in 2014 it became a Tax-Exempt Non-Profit Organization in the State of New York
I’RAISE started in 2012 as a mentoring program in the North Bronx, serving 40+ female at-risk youth who resided in New York City Authority Housing. It provided an intensive group-based and individualized mentoring program. Kids and teens ages 9-18 years old were also engaged in community organizing events with local leaders, advocating for community issues
I’RAISE has transformed the lives of more than 7,500 of our city’s most vulnerable youth, who without I’RAISE, would have been left alone to face insurmountable hardships. The success of so many kids can be attributed to I’RAISE vision, whose light shines brightly on every child and parent who have the meaningful opportunity of participating in programs
