R.E.A.C.H Program
An Educational Initiative of VRP Institute, Inc.

Program Description:
R.E.A.C.H (Receiving Educational Advantages Creatively Hands-On) programs are designed for youth and young adults as well as troubled/fragile or at risk youth in the community. Our R.E.A.C.H programs are providing educational advantages that will aid in expanding the circumference of an individual’s knowledge by increasing the diameter of their thinking. We will directly impact the success by positively changing or re-directing the focus of youth and young adults in the community. The programs will be conducted in surrounding areas; offering sessions on service learning, positive self-esteem building/positive choices, tutorials, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and educational services (e.g. STEM, 21st Century Learning, and Enrichment). These sessions are offered through our weekly seminars, after school, and summer camp programs.
