The R.I.S.E network was created to provide intervention services in the community specifically in response to gang, gun and senseless acts of violence. The R.I.S.E Network exists because the community has responsibility in the health of families, youth and the prevention of violent acts.

Street Cred is an interactive, activity based character education program specifically developed for high-risk teenagers and is designed to improve personal ethics, teach problem solving, build awareness of effective life skills, promote positive study skills, and support students in their daily decision making.

Together, Hawkins and Salaam planned events, camps, clinics and appearances, and they devised programs to benefit underprivileged children. Salaam became a fixture at Jefferson High School in Edgewater, Colo., where Hawkins has worked for 15 years. Salaam regularly spoke with classes and worked with students individually and in groups.
