A uniquely structured year-round farm program, On-The-Rise serves at-risk youth, ages 10-14, throughout Clark County, Ohio. On-The-Rise works with students to develop life skills, social skills and employment skills to set the stage for their success. Students learn responsibility by caring for goats and chickens, doing farm chores and running a brown egg business, while also enhancing their academic abilities by working with tutors on areas of struggle. Wallace & Turner, Inc. has insured On-The-Rise since its inception in 2002 and supports events and fundraisers throughout the year.
