About Us

Zenith Rising is a 501 c(3) non-profit organization based in Houston, Texas. Our mission is to teach leadership skills to young people through volunteering and active participation in the community. Our organization is run by a dedicated team of volunteers who are passionate about making a positive impact on the lives of young people. We work closely with schools, community organizations, and local businesses to provide a wide range of opportunities for our members.

Opening opportunities for young people to get involved in community service projects, volunteer work, and leadership training programs. Through these activities, our members learn valuable skills such as teamwork, communication, problem-solving, and decision-making. They also develop a sense of civic responsibility and a desire to give back to their communities. We believe that by instilling a sense of responsibility and leadership in young people, we can create a better future for our communities.

At Zenith Rising, we believe that everyone has the potential to be a leader, and we strive to empower our members to become effective and compassionate leaders. We offer mentorship programs and leadership training workshops to help young people develop their skills and reach their full potential.
