Welcome to Rising Stars in the Southwest

A Youth Leadership Process
Enabling youth to make positive life choices!

The Rising Stars process
is designed to help today's youth develop their personal leadership skills and begin to set goals and directions for their lives beginning at an earlier age. Leadership is essential in enabling teens to develop character, confidence, and values that promote healthy behavior.

Our Rising Stars, Rita and Jesus, move on to college! Our best wishes go to both!!!
Also big congratulations to Rising Stars Julia Paul and Jerick Martinez who plan to attend UNM!!!

A fine collectible, “Red Archer” donated by John Nieto and Ventana Fine Art in Santa Fe will be auctioned at our September Fundraiser.

It starts with a dream or vision!

Our Vision is to promote the talents and healthy behaviors of teenagers and to develop their potential for leadership in our community.

Our Mission is to reach out to under-resourced youth and to develop their leadership skills, which translates into diverse community awareness, self-accountability, and the highest self-confidence in education and career goals.

Our Objective is to provide highly motivated teens the opportunity to attain the educational goals and technical skills they seek to become tomorrow’s local community leaders.

Our Values:
All Students are Capable Learners and Leaders
Social Justice
Community Service
