Human Potential: We believe that when people unleash their potential, they have the ability to grow, change, and make a difference in their communities.
Equal Opportunity: We believe that economic, environmental and social opportunities should be accessible to everyone.
Energy & Resource Conservation: We believe in our shared responsibility to practice and promote environmental stewardship.
Results Driven: We are committed to achieving significant tangible results and measuring our environmental and social impact.
As innovators, Rising Sun will increase its impact on individuals, communities and the environment. We will focus our efforts in three areas:
Pathways: By fully integrating our programs, Rising Sun will create multiple entry points so that participants can access resources to support their career and life development over the long term.
Environmental Benefit: Rising Sun will measurably improve the environment by educating and working with communities to conserve resources while building demand for green services through partnerships, consumer education, and direct implementation.
Triple Bottom Line: Rising Sun will expand the scope and scale of its social enterprises in order to employ more participants, make a measurable contribution to resource conservation and sustain the organization.
