Teen Reach

Teen REACH is an after-school program funded by the Department of Human Services. Teen REACH focuses on serving at-risk youth ages 11-14 who meet the criteria of being low-income, at risk of truancy, those experiencing academic or behavior issues/bullying, are LGBTQ+, or experiencing other academic/non-academic challenges. The seven core service areas include: increasing academic performance, life skills education, parental involvement, positive adult mentors, sports/recreational/cultural activities, service-learning activities, and a STEM curriculum (a new addition to the program). The outcomes of Teen REACH are as follows: increased academic performance among students, increased parental involvement, increased opportunities for artistic and cultural immersion, as well as providing opportunities for the youth to become civically engaged.
