Resiliency Education: Advocacy, Collaboration & Hope
REACH is a resiliency program that targets at-risk students and their teachers. We address non-traditional but important subjects including: future planning, self-confidence, communication, decision-making, problem solving, teamwork and emotional management.
- Local teachers volunteer to become REACH advocates in their school. CWEF provides training in participatory teaching methods and the REACH curriculum to the advocates, who in turn facilitate the program activities with participating students. Students then become advocates as they begin serving their communities.
- REACH teachers and students learn the value of collaboration in the learning process and its value in community building.
- REACH participants replace fear of future challenges with hope for future opportunities.

Note: REACH was previously called Concordia Leadership Academy (CLA).
