What is Quincy Teen Reach?

Quincy Teen REACH (Responsibility, Education, Achievement, Caring, Hoping)  is an out-of-school program, that serves at-risk students from 4th to 12th grade. Most students are living at poverty level and live with a combination of risk factors that we help address.

Our mission is to empower students to achieve positive growth and improve opportunities for future success while reducing detrimental behaviors.

Teen Reach operates Monday through Friday during the school year and during summer. These core services are part of our daily program:

  1. Improving educational performance
  2. Life-skills education (i.e. hygiene, college readiness, sex education, etc.)
  3. Recreation, sports, and cultural/artistic activities 
  4. Positive adult mentoring
  5. Service learning (i.e. service projects)
  6. Parental involvement 
  7. STEM projects and activities
