    About REACT

    Eliot REACT meets once per month, and includes student sessions led by Morgan REACT members, as well as parent REACT meetings led by PiC coordinators. Eliot students learn about the importance of developmental assets in their lives, and are taught ways to increase their own assets from Morgan REACT students. Parents also learn about assets and have the opportunity to discuss with other parents ways to increase and sustain assets in their children. All sessions utilize “experiential learning” where the students take on challenges and games which are then processed as a group to help them derive understanding and information. The challenges and games are designed to be fun, interactive, and to develop connections between group members. The processing component helps the students to discover their leadership qualities and preferences, to understand how they tend to interact with others, and to assist them in taking healthy risks. Eliot REACT members have access to community service and leadership opportunities in the Clinton community, and are visible in these positive roles in Clinton events such as Christmas in Clinton and Medication Take Back Events.
