Our Mission:

Teen REACH provides a variety of services to support students and their families. Each day at the Peoria family YMCA, we will work to provide meaningful youth programming to support young women and men as they navigate their youth development journey into successful adulthood. Our work seeks to nourish the potential in each teen, and to equip them with the tools and resources they need to thrive.

What we offer:

This program helps youth to raise their academic standards, develop a positive sense of self, build character, explore diverse college and career options, and learn from role models who inspire them to greater heights. These services include; academic assistance, tutoring, life skills, parent involvement, recreation, sports, cultural activities, positive mentors, and service learning. We have also added two new programs GirlTalk (www.mygirltalk.org) and RealTalk (http://www.realtalkmmp.com) to girls and boys deal with the issues they face during their formative early teenage years.
