REACH responds to children, youth, and their families through a variety of services designed to connect them to their community. This initiative is unique because it focuses on that critical time in a young person’s life primarily between the ages 6 to 18. This is the time from beginning to end when young people begin experiencing growing independence, and when decisions can have a profound effect on their healthy development and successful progression from childhood to early adulthood and beyond. It is also a time when, provided with sufficient skills and support, that young people can make decisions to avoid risky behaviours.
The Boys and Girls Club of Moncton’s REACH program is based on important elements that foster community development, cooperation, accessibility to membership, accessibility to programs and services, a safe means of transportation for children in communities most in need, and assurance that our services will be there tomorrow for children who can't get to services like ours because of various barriers.
