Reaching for Tomorrow Program

Reaching for Tomorrow character development program equips at-risk and special needs youth with life skills to overcome life’s challenges by providing grade-specific, character education and basic skills.

The program’s objective is to provide supplemental curriculum which will reinforce life skills needed to achieve self-sufficiency. The 160 age-appropriate and grade-specific lesson plans are designed to involve youth through role playing, small group discussions and activities for special areas of focus.

Reaching for Tomorrow is available to boys and girls who are mildly to severely challenged, as well as at-risk youth. The program is delivered to students in grades Pre-K through 12. The program currently serves more than 10,000 youth in over 100 schools in central Indiana.
