Our training programs include awareness-raising workshops on human and labor risks for vulnerable populations and , as well as corporate and government decision-makers. REACH also offers skills training and informal education for children and adults.

​Education can take many forms, but in all cases, it is essential to effecting change. It can be directed at vulnerable populations and include awareness-raising programs to prevent at-risk individuals from becoming victims; informing victims about services available to them so that they can escape from exploitative or dangerous situations; skills trainings to create alternative ways to generate income and achieve economic independence; or informal education to give children and adults a better chance of breaking out of the cycle of poverty.   

​It may also be directed at those in power, including educating governments about the steps that they can take to protect vulnerable populations or building the capacity of the private sector to identify and address labor risks in their supply chains and operations. The members of REACH have experience in all of these areas.  

​For example, REACH provided workshops to prevent domestic, sexual, and other types of violence among women, children, and youth in Massachusetts, USA; Quetzaltenango, Guatemala; and Cusco, Peru.  Workshops were provided free of charge to over 1,000 women, children, and youth who had suffered, or were at a high risk of suffering from domestic and sexual violence. Workshops were provided through contacts with local NGOs, temporary shelters, schools, and educational projects that serve economically disadvantaged children. REACH analyzed informal educational models and designed interactive workshops that motivated and inspired students to actively participate, not only in order to create a more comfortable and engaging environment, but also so that we could learn from participants’ experiences and perspectives on domestic violence. REACH used art and dance to engage the participants and to facilitate communication of their experiences and feelings.
