Our Teen Programs
Teen REACH (Responsibility, Education, Achievement, Caring and Hope) is a preventative program serving tens of thousands of teens across the state.
The Boys & Girls Club Teen REACH program has one of the most cost-effective performance-based programs in the state and has accomplished the following:
-98 percent of youths were promoted to the next grade and/or graduated.
-91 percent of youths report that they learned things they can do to reduce violence in their community and 88 percent reported they have used those skills
to resolve conflicts.
-91 percent of our high school-aged youth report abstaining from drinking in the past 30 days versus only 63 percent of their peers in Illinois.
-About 70 percent of Teen REACH youths surveyed indicated that, without the program, they would not have after-school services.
