Students offering Support

Students Offering Support (SOS), interactive informal/non-formal learning, resources, and training with local community leaders and experts; i.e. QPR suicide prevention, building stronger mental health.

Training & Support

Youth-focused training & technical support from REACH staff to build protective factors in youth and create group cohesion between REACH participants.

Out of School Programming

Regular, organized out-of-school time learning opportunities for all participants engaging in small and large group activities; plus, annual fundraising/community events supporting REACH Program.

Summer Credit Recovery

A program for credit deficient high school students in Carlton County. We offer weeklong classes, camp style, so students can earn credits in subjects such as Math, English, and Science.

Youth Advisory Board

REACH launched its Youth Advisory Board (YAB) in the Fall of 2020. REACH’s YAB consists of middle and high school youth from most Carlton County school districts. The YAB advocates the holistic support of young people, focusing on mental health, and seeks to create stronger youth-adult partnerships to improve experiences of young people in Carlton County. They do this by advocating for restorative practices and strengthening youth voices and actions to create systemic changes that promote equality and equity to positively affect all youth in Carlton County.
