About This Project

REACH United / Service For Peace is a group of Louisville area college students that have been working with the mayor's office and LMPD since the youth violence occurred downtown in March. After speaking with many teens and community organizations that work with youth, we have realized that we need to put on more fun and exciting youth gatherings that appeal to teenagers and are in a safe environment. On July 12th, REACH United will host the first of a series of dance parties that will feature local hip-hop artists and DJ's. 20-30 college age REACH United college members will be chaperoning the party for 500 high school teenagers.

Impact

Through these monthly REACHFest dance parties, we will be providing a safe and fun environment for high school kids who otherwise have nowhere else to go on a Saturday night except hang out on the streets. We have received a tremendous responses from youth and youth-based organizations that want to make these dance parties a success.
