Our Mentorship program takes place at Newtown High School and matches children from 3rd to 8th grade with a high school mentor for one-to-one support, encouragement, and friendship. Mentors and Mentees take part in organized electives that offer competitive athletics, fine arts, team-building activities, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) challenges each day.
This program is centered around a balanced framework that values wellness, kindness, compassion, and various aspects of social development, including accountability and responsibility. However, the greatest strength in our Mentorship program is building and maintaining relationships that help our children grow into future leaders within our community.

Our Tutoring Academy provides homework & study support, as well as healthy snacks for our students. This all happens in a safe and predictable environment. Additionally, students are provided opportunities for exercise, games, and electives.
This affords the opportunity to provide intensive and individualized support in the following areas: Social Emotional Development, Academic Enrichment, Community Engagement and Extracurricular Opportunities.
Our REACH expeditions provide several off-site opportunities each year to help empower our students to make a difference in their lives, schools, and communities through acts of inquiry, discovery, and experience.
Our goal is to provide challenging and unique experiences that safely inspire curiosity, cultivate peer & mentor relationships, and to motivate students to REACH further and challenge themselves.
Expeditionary learning opportunities include: 1) Hiking Trips, 2) Wilderness Education and Survival Skills, 3) Fishing, 4) Camping, 5) Community Service Projects, and 6) Ropes & Zip-Line Courses.
Each year, we offer a six week Summer Camp to over 30 children during the months of July and August. Our camp is headquartered at Cullens Youth Association facility, which provides a quintessential, rustic camp experience.
During our six-week summer camp, students engage in outdoor expeditions, team-building activities, health & wellness experiences, water sports, fishing, swimming, summer reading, STEM electives, fine arts, and athletics.
REACH relies on the generosity of our supporters to sustain our programs. If you'd like to show your support, please consider donating to REACH.
