Established in 2010 Raising Up The Youth was first named Teen Club Community, the founder Londi Viccarone started the organization to support Cleveland inner city youth by hosting live talent shows which turned into Rising Star Youth Ministry and in 2013 The Rising Star T.V. show (ages 8-18) began.

Over the years the vision & mission has continued to expand, now in 2022 the ministry will start reaching youth all over the world through this website .
This virtual community of professional adults (support network) and youth (students) will make a positive impact in their own communities around the world and bring glory to God.


Londi Viccarone


Here we are now in 2022. I’ve been a Christian for 13 years, God is good I’m still serving teaching the bible and ministering to the youth in the neighborhood I grew up in Clark/Fulton in Cleveland Ohio. What I’ve learned over the years being a child of God is that God in His timing for his plan will accomplish his purpose for our life, we are to love, trust and obey Him and serve . As we move forward building this site and the future training center I thank God for His grace and what He put on my heart 13 years ago. I do believe he will finish what He started, I needed trained up these past 13 years I thank God for all the Godly people He has brought into my life to bring me to this next step in raising up the youth.
