To transform hearts and develop leaders for the flourishment of healthy families, homes, and communities in our city.
Combining our curriculum with genuine, impactful relationships to transform lives, homes, and communities.
Our curriculum consists of meaningful dialogue around topics such as: Culture, Responsibility, Authority, Stories, Fatherhood, and Family.
In partnership with the schools we work with, we are given access to teach our curriculum during schools hours, and develop relationships with our students on and off campus.
Developing meaningful relationships with young women
Our young women are just as much in need of support as our young men. We provide professional and experienced female role-models to develop relationship with our girls. These women are not only passionate about seeing hearts and lives transformed, but can also relate to what our young women are currently going through. Outside of this relational support, we've also developed a curriculum to teach girls on campus. Topics we discuss consist of: Relational Development, Self-Worth, Forgiveness, Attitude, and Stories.
Providing clothing and community service/volunteer hours to students in need.
Our students are not only in need of loving role-models, but have tangible needs too. Cesar's Closet meets both the relational and tangible. This store is open weekly to ALL students on the Cesar Chavez High School campus. We provide clothing, shoes, and hygiene products, all FREE of charge. We also offer volunteer hours and work experience to students working in our store.
Beyond the Classroom
A huge part of our program is hanging out with students off campus. We provide gatherings over meals, trips to sporting events and movie theaters, and winter and summer camps with organizations we partner with. We also bring them around our family to model healthy home and family life. We love getting to know our students family as well, and offer opportunity for them to join us during these hangouts as much as possible.
THE WHY BEHIND WHAT WE DO
It's Not Supposed To Be This Way: Most inner-city youth come from broken homes, i.e: divorced parents, poverty, physical or verbal abuse, etc. They carry this into the classroom where it often negatively effects their school performance. As they enter into adulthood, they often model some of the same negative behaviors they experienced growing up, resulting in a cycle of more broken homes, neighborhoods, and communities.
Restoring Hearts, Homes, and Community: Here at Arizona Reach, we believe in the power of relationships. Our volunteers are passionate and professional, and can relate to life in the inner-city. By way of our curriculum on campus and earning relational equity in the life of the students and their family, we are confident that lives and homes that were once broken can be restored for the greater good in our city.
One of our favorite quotes is:
"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."
With your support we can make a greater impact and transform more hearts, homes, and communities.
