Reaching Up is a nonprofit organization whose mission is “to create hope, help and opportunities by bringing community partners together to respond to the local needs of youth and families.  Homework Help will provide the following components to make this a complete well-rounded after school program – meals, social interaction and enrichment, academic assistance, and transportation

It meets after school Monday through Thursday at Easter by the Lake.   We need van drivers to transport the students, van assistants to interact with them during transportation, and Homework Helpers to tutor and bring enrichment to the elementary and middle school students who participate in the after-school program.
