Graduate Services Takes Off

Pictured are RISE-DC’s Susan Laing with Brian Walker, Anacostia alum and now a participant in RISE-DC’s Step Up program, a division of RISE-DC’s Graduate Services. RISE-DC plans to raise the outlook for at least thirty of its high school alumni during this school year by putting them on track for livable wage occupations. Prior to working with RISE-DC, Susan counseled for the I Have a Dream Foundation for more than 20 years. Brian is a budding stand up comic and has appeared on the RFD stage near Gallery Place.
