WHY REACH THEM?
Reach Them to Teach Them is not just a catchy phrase; it is a call to intentionally be a positive influence in the life of a child. An authentic relationship with an adult role model is vital to the successful development of any child, regardless of race, creed or socio-economic status. Adversities at home, peer pressure, and the relentless onslaught of media are so powerful that kids may lose hope and the motivation to make a difference — to be who God created them to be. Yes, God, the One who strengthens us and works for the good of all who serve Him. We are a group of believers. Kids must have someone who believes in them, challenges them, and talks with them about what really matters in life: knowledge, faith, character, hope, love...the greatest of these.
Reach Them to Teach Them is not about the mechanics of being a teacher, but is about one person making a BIG difference. *Our Mission is to train, motivate and inspire leaders to equip young people with skills and confidence to reach their maximum potential.
*That's fancy talk for we're going to share methods that have clicked with kids, help you up when you're down, and jumpstart your heart when you need a jolt because kids are worth it!

I've learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel. – Maya Angelou
The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
– Elie Wiesel
Train a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.
