HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Reach Wellness Team
REACH has a collaborative multi-agency Wellness team that supports the integration of health & wellness, social justice, and youth leadership into all of our programs and services. Through our healing, capacity, and action framework, youth counselors participate in programming, build relationships, encourage skill building, and provide healthy mentorship with young people individually or in groups. Wellness team members also provide wellness consultation to programs and partners and participate in our response and disciplinary interventions at REACH to bring a restorative, generative, and youth-focused lens to ensure young people are learning and growing from every challenge and success.
