Empowering Individuals and Inspiring Communities

IMG_0122 (1).jpg

The name "All Rise" represents our belief that developing confidence, respect and perseverance can not only impact individual students, but elevate entire communities. Success, earned through commitment and persistence, becomes inspiration for anyone fortunate enough to witness it. In this way, we can all benefit from a dedication to self-improvement.

Our programs are designed to promote determination, integrity and camaraderie. Experienced ARMA students are trained to take a leadership role and teach their fellow classmates. We are also proud to offer support to our local LA community and beyond.  Currently, we're collaborating with No Limits for Deaf Children, an organization that provides after school programs for the hearing impaired. We're also honored to be partners with the Tyler Clementi Foundation, a non-profit group that provides anti-bullying education and resources across the country.
