In Arms Reach (IAR), a community-based grassroots 501 c 3 organization located at the prestigious CUNY School of Medicine. We provide low-income disengaged children of incarcerated parents (age 7-21) with academic enrichment, high performing mentorship, STEM exposure, college prep, mental health guidance and holistic support services.
At IAR, we promote an academic friendly atmosphere that allow children and families to deal positively with the social ills of society and comfort youth to break their silence about having a loved one who is incarcerated. Our empowering platform is where participants can speak freely to help digest any feelings of anger, sorrow, and frustration. One of our goals is to normalize education beyond high school and spark the imagination and conversations about 21st century workforce and careers.
