REACH students take to Lake Michigan

Sept. 2, 2017

Over the summer, a group of refugee youth from REACH, short for Refugee Education and Adventure Challenge, ventured onto Lake Michigan with kayaks in tow. REACH, a nonprofit created by the School for New Learning's Shana Wills, aims to provide refugee youth and their families with experiential learning opportunities focused on STEAM-related education and adventure sports, like canoeing, hiking and rock climbing. Its mission is to inspire leadership, academic success and connections among refugee youth through active dynamic learning outside the classroom.
