ABOUT RISING YOUNG LEADERS
The Rising Young Leaders (formerly known as Mony Nop Foundation) opens doors of opportunity for students who are enrolled in middle school and reside in the California Tri-Valley cities of Livermore, Pleasanton, Dublin, San Ramon, and Danville.
The Foundation was born from a simple idea conceived by Mony Nop, a former Livermore police officer whose duties on the force often found him working directly with youth, families, and school groups. Mony’s work with youth and his own personal story of survival as a child motivated him to form a local board of directors and establish a community organization that promises to empower young people and enable them to follow their dreams.
The Rising Young Leaders’s primary goals are to foster a strong, lifelong commitment to community service and to provide individual scholarships for enrichment programs in the areas of visual and performing arts, sports and athletics, and leadership development. Individual scholarships are to be awarded upon completion of required volunteer hours.
