REACH Center open house Nov. 3

At-risk young adults, program providers can see what’s available

Tacoma’s REACH Center will hold an open house Nov. 3 that will focus on services for at-risk young adults and partnership opportunities for program providers.

The REACH Center is located on the first two floors of Tacoma Goodwill’s Milgard Work Opportunity Center, 714 S. 27th St., Tacoma. The event is free and will take place from 3:30-5 p.m. There will be entertainment and a presentation for all visitors at 4 p.m.

“The REACH Center open house is an opportunity for people to get acquainted with all the opportunities we have available to focus young adults on education or a career,” said Kurt Miller, center director. “It’s also a chance for service providers to see what partnerships we can create to better leverage what we all do in the community to help young adults.”

REACH, Resources for Education And Career Help, is a separate agency from Goodwill and provides workforce development services for young adults 16-24. The center includes a job resource room, classrooms, and a life skills room for nutrition and meal preparation. The one-stop job fair area includes space for counseling and education services.
