Mission Statement

Operation REACH, Inc., engages, empowers and inspires children, youth and families through innovative community-based learning opportunities.

Description

At Operation REACH, we accomplish our mission by:

  • Developing high-quality, innovative programs that are accessible to all communities;
  • Partnering with community institutions, corporations, foundations, parks and recreation departments, government agencies and schools; and
  • Providing training and technical supports for change agents working to reform youth service delivery systems.

Core Values

Educational Equity: We acknowledge that educational inequities persist and that low-wealth individuals and people of color are disparately left behind. We believe that academic achievement is a pathway out of poverty and is intricately tied to success in life.

Social Responsibility: We believe that success in life is tied to people expressing a sense of their shared commitments to their communities. We believe that everybody, particularly youth, is a social change agent. As leaders of today, they are simply waiting to be discovered and elevated to make a difference in the transformation of their communities.

Asset-Based Approaches: When schools fail, community supports should step in to ensure that no child is left behind. We believe in bringing community assets and resources together to leverage and sustain high-quality opportunities for underserved children, youth and families to have sustainable community-based options for learning and engagement in the civic culture.

Servant Leadership: We believe that the highest expression of human leadership is through service to the broader community. We believe everybody is a leader.
