The mission of REAP is to inspire, engage, and empower youth and individuals to achieve personal development, maximize performance levels, accomplish academic success and community leadership.
The REAP "tree," if you will, is made up of four main "branches." Here are the programs offered by our organization. 1.) Challenge Conference: Challenge is a day set aside for students to be empowered on how to become a better people. It is designed to create a culture of student leadership that builds from the success of the past, responds to the challenges of the present and embraces the possibilities of the future. Parents, teachers and community guests are strategically engaged with the intent to affirm the potential of student success. 2.) Solutions: Solutions is a leadership diversity program designed to motivate students to aspire for excellence. 9th-12th grade students from diverse ethnic groups receive individual support from leadership coaches who provide ongoing support, focused on developing leadership, character and the confidence of the student. 3.) Reflections: Reflections is a dropout prevention mentoring program. Students who are assigned to In-School Suspension benefit from academic support and mentoring during their suspension period. Students are able to complete class work, develop a success plan and complete a positive behavior curriculum in an effort to reinforce appropriate school behavior and school safety. 4.)Black Studies Black Studies is a course that offers a greater understanding of the black experience past, present and future. It explores the black experience, illuminates the contributions of people of African descent to world culture and provides an alternative to traditional approaches to the study of American history that have bypassed the black experience. The course is geared to reshape the mindset toward black achievement and cultural identity. Students enrolled in the course benefit from tutoring support and leadership development.
