Due to the 20% increase number of children suffering from severe anxiety with Arizona being higher than the national average for suicide among young teens at 17%, Reach For The Stars believes that it is critical now more than ever to grab onto our youth and give them a unique, fun and alternative way of coping.  When health problems are not addressed early, they can have lasting consequences into adulthood. Children today are having anxiety at age 5 and we as a community can combat this, because lets face it, children are the future!

OUR HOME IS COMPLETLY STUFFED,
IT'S TIME TO MOVE THE NONPROFIT OUT...

Our goal is to have a Community Center (preferably near Vail) with an observatory, classroom setting for our underprivileged youth to learn while being inspired about space exploration and careers. This center will not only be about astronomy but will also combine our other programs. We would like to have our youth spend time volunteering by packing homeless backpacks and food boxes for distribution. These tasks would create a sense of euphoria, empathy, team work, leadership, confidence, stress-release skills as well as volunteer and educational hours in a safe, fun environment.
