Teen Reach

The Lawrence County Health Department is excited to announce a new after school program for high-risk youth in our community. “The Bee Hive” is where youth will Blossom, Be Educated, and Excel in life skills. While school is in session, the program will be offered Monday – Friday from 3:00 - 6:00 PM.

The Illinois Teen REACH program has been adapted in various counties throughout the state. Teen REACH (Responsibility, Education, Achievement, Caring, and Hope) is a comprehensive youth development initiative that provides after school program services to high-risk youth with our target age group being 11-17.

Our focus will be in 7 core service areas:

- STEM
- Life Skills
- Academics
- Mentoring
- Sports/Recreation
- Service Learning
- Parent Involvement
