Project Reach is a program that helps kids at Lewiston Middle School who may face barriers to their education.

It may be grades or other personal struggles. The program helps kids develop leadership, and job interview skills. They also do many activities and events that go on for, and inside, the school. This is the first step in getting ready for the Lewiston High School’s version of Project Reach, the Lewiston Regional Technical Center, also know as LRTC.

The kids do many projects from community service to turkey raffles. They come up with these ideas and then they put their plans into action. They do things for the community such as helping kids in the Make-A-Wish foundation and going Holiday Caroling at d’Youville Pavillion at St. Mary’s Hospital next to the school. They also do a lot of fundraisers within the school. To raise money they have a turkey raffle, a hat day, a silver fundraiser, and a talent show. They are also going to try and do things for the holidays like caroling and having an EID celebration.

Project Reach also likes to help charities, so they have J.O.Y. This is a program where Project Reach gets $1,000 to give to the charity of their choice that supports the youth. Every grade, 7-12, gets the same amount. Project Reach wants to combine with the high school and have a total of $6,000 to give to a charity.

Those are just some of the things that Project Reach is going to do this year. Keep up the good work Project Reach.
