Rise Membership Ambassadorship

Invest in the success of a young woman you care about...

...with a gift she will thank you for again and again.

Gift a Rise Membership

The mentorship, community and expert support she needs in early career.

Give a young woman in your life the best possible chance to succeed.

Isolation, stress, anxiety, impostor syndrome..

This is the experience 100's of women in their 20's have shared with us about their experience in early career.

College teaches us to think, but it never taught us to survive (let alone thrive) in the "real world".

This is where Rise comes in.

Don't just take it from us.. new research from the Harvard Business Review shows women need networks even more than men to succeed professionally.. We make it easy (and fun) for our members to access the information and relationships they need, early enough in their careers to make a real difference!

What Rise members are saying...

Rise provides me with the community that I needed after I graduated from college! I feel supported because I realized that other young women have the same questions as I do - We are all in this together!

~Winki C., Rise member

Rise has been an incredible community to be a part of. Not only have I received great advice from experts in an array of fields, but I also have met and been inspired by my new network of amazing women (and friends!)

~Maddie S., Rise member

Navigating the professional world is rarely straightforward and often stressful, and having Rise in your corner helps immeasurably. Through the negotiations module, I prepared myself to ask for a raise in a confident and informed way— and I got it! The Rise community empowered me to know my worth and make sure my employer did too.  

~Erin C., Rise member

'Rise motivates me to set time aside to invest in myself and gain valuable information about key topics like stress and finances. I also like the frequent posts on the Facebook page because it reminds me to complete the modules and make sure that I am setting aside time. Rise keeps me accountable.'  

~Ellie H., Rise member

'{I joined Rise because} I was struggling to find a job, I didn't know what I wanted, debating grad school, just lost, confused, and lonely in the process.'  

~Holly, Rise member

A Word from Our Founder

Julia Starr, Business Strategist & Life Coach, M.Ed., Harvard Graduate School of Education

In the last seven years I've worked as a teacher, a consultant, a coach and an entrepreneur. I have seen how there are unwritten rules that dictate what success looks like (and how to achieve it), and observed that there's a single narrative which primarily serves one group of people (hint: it's not young women).

In my own life, and in the lives of the 100's of young women who have come through my coaching practice, it has become evident that this framework doesn't work for us. Whether it's chronic anxiety, burnout, or impostor syndrome, the existing ways of working are not serving the female population.

And I deeply believe we need to find ways to support female leaders. And we need to do it in a new way, a way that is energizing, uplifting and totally magnetic!

Rise is the accumulation of the things that I know work: coaching, accountability, community, and access to information.

Given we want to get Rise into the hands of as many young women as possible.. we thought, "How cool would it be if parents, mentors and sponsors could gift a Rise membership to a young woman they want to see succeed?!"

When you gift a Rise membership, you are giving somethig that will support the recipient for the next year of their lives (and relationships and knowledge that will truly span a lifetime)!

Thank you for choosing to invest in the continued growth and success of women.



As soon as you gift the subscription, your recipient will receive access to our password-protected website where they can launch our online courses, join our private social networks and sign up to be paired with a mentor and accountability buddy!

*a brand new expert module is added each month

Our mentors are successful women in their mid to late career who want to give back to a woman at the beginning of her career.

Mentoring has always been a huge part of my life. Whether informal or formal, I’ve had many mentors and mentored a few people myself. It is so important, especially for women, to see themselves in someone and know that they have the support and ability to reach their dreams and potential. When Rise began their mentoring program, I knew I had to be a part of it!

Here are some that we get asked most frequently...

Is there a geographic restriction for members?

  • No, we have members from literally all over the globe, from Boston to Dubai, from Minneapolis to Mexico City. The majority of Rise offerings can be accessed virtually, including mentorship, which makes our resource one of the most flexible personal and professional development solutions available today! 

Is there an age restriction for members?  

  • Most of our content is designed for women in their 20's and early 30's! Rise is the perfect gift for women in the first few years of their career, or transitioning out of undergrad or grad school.

What happens when a member is paired with a mentor? 

  • Mentors are women over the age of 30 who have dedicated the majority of their adult lives to career.. they all have incredible backgrounds that lend themselves to experience that will support members' success!
  • We ask members for their location and industry preferences, and we do our best to match members up with a female mentor who fits their personal and professional interests and goals.
  • Mentors are committed to giving members one hour each month, either over the phone or video chat (if they are matched with someone in their own city it's up to them to decide if they want to meet in person), and together they set their expectations and focus areas.
  • We support members and mentors with a Mentor Guide that outlines expectations and potential topics, and our amazing mentor director, Emily, is always on hand to support members' mentorship experience!

Does content expire?  

  • No, content does not expire. Modules are archived and members can complete them at their own pace.. and choose to complete the modules that are most relevant to their life!
  • Our live expert Q&A's are posted in our private Facebook group after that fact.. and members can submit questions in advance if they're unable to join live.
  • The monthly goal-setting call IS live, and members need to be present to get the face time with our founder Julia, and the rest of your Rise community. However, we have built the mentor and accountability buddy programs to help fill the gaps when members need options that are completely customizable to their life and schedule.
