What does REACH offer for High schoolers? We have a variety of opportunities to jump in and get to know other High School teens. Parents are encouraged to help organize activities and field trips (especially educational ones) that will help our teens develop friendships.
High School Leadership Council meets once a month in a google hangout. Student officers are voted into office for a full year of service. All High Schoolers have the opportunity to develop leadership skills. We are aiming to build the REACH community, organize/implement activities, welcome/invite new members, develop communication and interpersonal relationships.
Annual Dues: $10
Contact advisors: Kim Andrysczyk or Rebecca Hansen
We look forward to great ideas and activities from these young leaders. We invite you to get involved! All teens and parents are invited to organize meet-ups and field trips. Contact REACH admin team for assistance.
Monthly High school meet-ups:
* Fridays at Firefly. Come play board games and socialize. Bring your own craft project too.
* Thursdays at Teen Club in Irmo. Teens meet for speakers, group projects and more while younger siblings go to One-Lesson-at-a-Time Club.
* Teen Afternoon Out & Teen Meet-n-Greet. A field trip meet-up especially for teens (at least once per month).

REACH Co-op Locations meet weekly (14-weeks per semester). REACH also has a One-Lesson-At-A-Time Club for those of us who can’t commit to 14-weeks at a co-op. Teens meet and socialize thru educational activities in cooperative learning classes. REACH co-ops are not a drop-off program; Parents are required to be actively involved in helping implement the weekly activities. Find out more about current schedule at REACH Co-op.
Plus, REACH has groupwide activities for all ages. We know that teens often prefer age-specific activities. But, these groupwide activities serve as a great jumping in point for new members. We encourage teens to come–meet new people–and demonstrate their commitment and follow-thru. The more teens we have coming out for activities, the better we can plan and develop activities that teens want.
REACH Teens and Teen Parents are invited to join Teen Leadership FB Group
