REACH - Reflective Educational Approach to Character and Health
What are youths' experiences in an after-school program that integrates literacy pedagogy and physical education through a positive youth development approach? How do literacies and youths' engagement with culturally responsive, sports-based literature shape experiences in understanding themselves, their communities, and their world?
REACH is an after-school interdisciplinary program for youth in limited-resourced communities. The aims of REACH include providing youth access to safe spaces after-school where they are valued, invested in, and engaged in physical activity, literacy-based activities, and collaborative learning.
