What We Do
We develop and deliver creative place-based programs that inspire and challenge refugee youth to step out of their comfort zones, to connect to others and their environs, and to discover a sense of space. Through experiential learning activities, we aim to awaken relationships between learning, living, and the land.
Who We Serve
REACH serves refugee youth, ages 10-18, who are at risk due to integration barriers and other urban factors. REACH formed in 2016 in direct response to current gaps in the field of refugee resettlement where agencies are severely underfunded and schools under supported. As refugee youth adjust and grow, REACH addresses their needs through academic, leadership, social-emotional learning supports, and outdoor education opportunities.
