The mission of Adventures in Reaching is to help each participant, through fun and challenging activities, to break through preconceived personal barriers, and to understand their roles and the roles of others in a team setting. We encourage participants to improve skills of communication, teamwork, and compassion, and for them to internalize these skills and transfer them to other areas of their lives.
This mission is based on the beliefs that:
a sense of well-being is nurtured through the development of self-esteem, self-confidence, and healthy social interactions.
responsible citizenship includes honesty, commitment, and respect for others, the environment, and the community.
respect for diversity and differences involves building a community and creating programs and curriculum that are attentive to issues of learning style, race, ethnicity, family configuration, sexual orientation, gender, religion, and economic status.
