REACH, a program administered by the City of Rancho Palos Verdes' Recreation and Parks Department, is designed to serve the social and recreational needs of youth and young adults with developmental disabilities in Palos Verdes and the South Bay.
REACH offers over 100 challenging and diverse activities each year, designed to promote:
- Community access and assimilation
- Independent living
- Physical fitness
- Social interactivity
REACH activities are generally held on Monday and Wednesday evenings and weekends to accommodate school and work schedules. REACH also offers:
- Art and music therapy
- Special events
REACH staff is motivated, creative and friendly. The participant to staff ratio is 7 to 1. REACH members must be non-violent, ambulatory and have sufficient hygiene skills.
The REACH Program is Back!
The REACH program started in February 2021 in a virtual capacity. Participants can enjoy virtual activities such as; Art Mondays, Monthly Book Clubs and Game Night Wednesdays!
Nature Walks Beginning April!
Starting in April, REACH will host in-person Nature Walks! Nature walks will not be virtual, but will be held at Hesse Park. REACH Participants will have the opportunity to watch dramatic sunsets over the pacific ocean, while learning about local wildlife and native plants.
(The REACH Program will adhere to Los angles County's current Covid-19 restrictions for a safe and fun experience.)
