The REACH Program – NYC

Racial, Ethnic, And Cultural Healing for BIPOC Youth and Adults

Have you been affected by racism-related stress and anxiety? Racism affects BIPOC in both subtle and significant ways, ultimately creating strong impacts on the satisfaction of daily life. Additionally, it can negatively affect decision-making in relationships, work, and school.

The REACH Program was designed for BIPOC Youth and Adults to share community with one another. Our goal is to stand by our BIPOC brothers and sisters with support, encouragement, and resources as we navigate through racism-related stress and provide coping mechanisms to make empowered decisions for themselves.

About The REACH Program

The REACH Program was created by Dr. Ryan DeLapp, licensed clinical psychologist at The Ross Center. Dr. DeLapp created The Reach Program as a safe space for BIPOC to share support with one another in a group setting. Group members learn how to cope with strong emotions, anxiety, depression, and other effects of day-to-day life from racism-related stress.

Program Details:

  • 6-week cycles
  • 75-minute sessions
  • All groups are facilitated by Dr. Ryan DeLapp
  • Each meeting features thought-provoking media, including music, spoken word poetry, movie and video clips, and engaging activities
  • Exercises to introduce effective coping resources
  • Sharing of participant experiences to inspire growth in Empowered Decision-Making
