A local organization is preparing teens for life after high school in a newly formed program. Project Reach, founded by the Youth Counsel, is helping 12 students from Grover Cleveland improve their chances for a successful life after graduation. Funded by grant monies received through "Job And Family Services" and "one Stop Career Center", Project Reach teaches students various skills. This week the students are learning how to build and operate computers. Monday through Thursday students are required by contract to participate in the program 2 to 3 hours a day after school. This may seem like a burden to some teens but to the ones in the program it has been quite a learning experience. Also by teaching students various skills Project Reach, which started this past January, hopes to reduce the local area's dropout rate among high school students.
