Youth are the future of our society. So much of how the world will turn out is in their hands. However, countless children are born into underprivileged communities, which sets them back from ever reaching their true potential. The world is often unfair, but that doesn’t always mean there aren’t ways to ensure a young person’s success. REAP Inc. has dedicated itself to becoming the beacon of light for youth from underprivileged communities, helping them become better versions of themselves through the institution’s high-quality services.
The world has made great strides towards achieving equality, but we still have a long way to go before genuinely achieving equal opportunity for all. REAP Inc. pushes the boundaries of education to enable youth from underprivileged communities to level the playing field and attain what most individuals can when given the opportunity. Through their tried and tested REAP Solution Program, many children have significantly bolstered their chances of achieving their lifelong dreams.
REAP Inc. was established in 2001 and has become a powerhouse by creating future leaders and empowering children to reach for their dreams despite not having the privilege to do so. Recently, the renowned establishment made a significant pivot towards helping school communities with many underprivileged individuals and non-English speakers.
REAP Inc. successfully equips the youth with the five key aspects of leadership, student voice, cooperative management (conflict resolution) and entrepreneurship through its 10-month leadership curriculum, the REAP Solution program. The program enables students from vastly different backgrounds and cultures to foster a sense of inclusivity, diversity, and equality.
The curriculum offers a series of interactive leadership modules concentrated on civics, education, health, business, and leadership. Furthermore, program offerings focus on specialized, applied learning approaches emphasizing writing, speaking, reading, and inquiry. These lifelong skills can go a long way, especially when taken to heart and applied thoroughly in one’s day-to-day life.
REAP Inc. educates youth and helps them gain exceptional leadership skills in their schools and respective communities. The programs are designed to cultivate a strong set of skills in communication, problem-solving, negotiation, and teamwork. In addition, to encourage a sense of entrepreneurship and secure its students’ futures, REAP also offers a Young Entrepreneurs Program that will teach unique and innovative wealth-building strategies to children at a young age.
REAP Inc. is adept at flexibility, versatility, and excellence. The brand has consistently delivered successful results without fail. Much of the company’s success can be attributed to the relentless drive, determination, and passion that fuels REAP’s inner workings. When the global pandemic came, the company quickly adapted its services to the digital world to continue educating the youth and spreading the brand’s positive message.
“Transitioning REAP programs to a virtual setting has been costly but 100% worth it for our students. Donations play an integral role in helping us to maintain, develop, and strengthen the quality of our online offerings,” shared a representative. REAP is currently looking for other companies with the same vision of guiding the youth towards success. They hope to collaborate with more groups and individuals such as federal funders, CEOs, philanthropists, social change agents and organizations, NGOs, and donors.
REAP Inc. has done so much good to the world, and it is positioned to do even more in the years to come. To further increase the quality of its services, it is committed to creating world-class eLearning and after-school programs that will continuously empower the youth to maximize their potential.
