Aided in the creation of several infographics and manages outreach. Notable for her ability to formulate and effectively communicate unique ideas.

"I joined REACH to make a difference in students' lives who don’t have the privilege of going to tutoring classes that cost thousands of dollars. Everyone here comes from all different backgrounds with the same goal in mind, to make a difference in these kids' lives, and that’s the best part about REACH!"

JUDE ORTEGA, MANHATTAN CENTER '21

Dedicated volunteer and active contributor to a creative writing and fantasy-based course lesson plan. Notable for his readiness in presentations and clarity in planning.

"What I loved about working with REACH was being able to apply my experiences from the numerous extracurriculars that I've been a part of to create a condensed version of activities that allows the youth that lacks access to these programs to experience it firsthand. Working  with others on a topic to create lesson plans allowed me to broaden my horizons, and helped me adopt a new outlook which was a very gratifying experience."
