R.I.S.E. Westmoreland is a non-profit organization created by Suzanne Clawson Dzvonick, a local educator.
The recent and tragic events in our schools prompted us to put into motion RISE Westmoreland.
Suzanne is a Youth Mental Health First Aid provider and trains local school districts in Trauma-Informed Practices.
RISE Westmoreland focuses on reducing the stigma of mental health and creating an atmosphere in schools that supports these goals. RISE donates FREE social and emotional curriculum and online resources to local school districts that they might not otherwise be able to purchase.
We also provide Trauma Informed Schools Training at no cost. All of your donations go directly to our schools.
Who will we educate? Teachers! Knowledge is power! Training and support for our educators will directly effect our children. Ensuring that educators and schools have the curriculum and resources that they need to provide a safe and educational environment is our priority.
