Rise Above

Jaci McCormack, an enrolled member of the Nez Perce Tribe co-founded Rise Above with Brad Meyers. The idea of using basketball as a modality to reach kids morphed from the previous experiences of Jaci and Brad. They both led successful careers as basketball players, playing at Washington State University and Illinois State University. However, it was not from basketball but from their experience working with American Indian youth in prevention and adolescent treatment this idea was formed. They took concepts used by previous organizations and formed a unique program in Rise Above. Rise Above meets kids where they are currently to address important issues around healthy living.

Rise Above’s mission is to empower Native youth to live healthy lives; By providing awareness, prevention, and character enrichment using sport as a platform
