The REACH summer youth program starts back up for its second year when school is out! The free program in Boise is geared toward youth from refugee backgrounds who are in middle school and older, as well as their younger siblings. Activities include games, art projects, reading, lunch, and field trips.
The program is organized by the Idaho Office for Refugees with the help of Glocal Community Partnerships and other supporting nonprofits. Last year, organizations including the Boise Bicycle Project, Boise Library, Refugee Speakers Bureau, Tidwell, and Grow Outdoor Access hosted great events for the students.
Volunteers welcome! We’ll meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 12-3 p.m., June 7 to Aug. 11. Sign up here to volunteer.
For information about location and volunteering, please contact Chantale Niyonkuru, youth program specialist at IOR: firstname.lastname@example.org.
