Family & Education Center
REACH is a community-based organization that provides spaces to empower families as lifelong learners who together learn, live, and love seeking just and peaceful neighborhoods.
What are our hopes and dreams?
We imagine being able to transform the marginalized Brooklyn communities surrounding the REACH Center. By providing learning opportunities, REACH envisions the development of healthy neighborhoods, families, and individuals that are able to flourish. We seek to promote just relationships and advocate for social justice.
Literacy Unpreparedness Entering School
Children of adults with low literacy skills are 72% more likely to be at a low reading level in school compared to their friends raised by literate parents.
Lack of Grade-Level Proficiency
Some 34% of students are below basic reading level in the fourth grade, another 31% are below the proficient reading level.
and Dropout Rates
Students who are behind when they start kindergarten make up the largest portion of school dropouts. They have a less than 16% chance of attending college.
