“Rising Sun will meet you more than halfway, but you have to do your part. My cohort was very supportive and really kept me going. My classmates told me I could do it and I did.”

Tyi Johnson, Opportunity Build Graduate

“I would encourage Opportunity Build for anyone interested in the sustainability of themselves, their family, resources, and the planet.”

Chris Burger, Opportunity Build Graduate

“If I did not attend the Opportunity Build program, I would not have seen how bright my future could be, and that’s all thanks to the amazing training and skills I’ve learned from Rising Sun.”
