Igniting Engaging Elevating the next wave of leaders

REAP is a year-round multicultural youth leadership program committed to empowering the next wave of leaders. REAP works with students in grades 3rd through 12th, who represent our most marginalized student populations.


We empower students to become global leaders through civic engagement, entrepreneurship and cooperative management (conflict resolution) for a better future NOW. In recent years, REAP has served more than +1,000 students each year.
