REACH Youth Program
Sierra Health Foundation’s REACH Youth Program supports healthy development of youth for their successful transition to adulthood.
Through REACH, we’re committed to helping California Capital Region youth succeed by increasing participation in quality programs and activities, providing opportunities for youth to develop leadership and decision-making skills, and helping communities take positive action for youth.
REACH focuses on that critical time when youth begin experiencing growing independence, and when decisions can have a profound effect on healthy development and successful progression to adulthood. It is also a time when, provided with sufficient skills and support, youth can make decisions to avoid risky behaviors.
We committed $8 million over four years (from 2006 to 2010) for youth through the REACH program. Please note: Funding is no longer available through the REACH program.
Research shows that youth are more likely to succeed if engaged in positive activities that develop their skills and connect them to caring relationships and their community.
