REACH Program

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.

Program Activities

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
  • Camps
  • Dances
  • 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.
