8th Annual Taste of Riverside Raised Over $50,000!

That's a new high mark for REC!

It was an evening filled with color, food, rhythm and friends. The REC community thanks all of you who shared the evening with us and contributed to its SUCCESS!

And special thanks go out to all of our sponsors and donors!

Your generosity helps REC help kids, like our evening's hosts Dulce and Gabriel, grow academically and personally to become young adults who make our community strong.

Together we can make a difference!

The REC community appreciates our Sponsors' support!

Welcome Kari Sewell!
REC's New Alternative Program

REC is excited to have Kari Sewell join our staff as the new Alternative Program Manager!

Kari recently earned her BA in Social Work from Colorado Mesa University. She is looking forward to working with our students at R-5 - helping them set attainable goals and then assisting them with the tools they need as they do the work to achieve those goals.

She comes to REC with the experience of raising two college-age daughters AND recently reaching her own goal of earning her college degree. She'll be a great cheerleader for REC's kids!

REC Students Out and About

This time they went all the way to Denver!

On Saturday, October 28th, three of REC's high school students presented about outdoor programming and youth leadership at the National Land Trust Conference.
Way to go Juan, Gabi and Areli! Thanks for sharing the great things REC is doing in partnership with Libby at Mesa Land Trust!
The foundation of every society is the education of its youth.
- Diogenes

As always, THANK YOU for believing in REC!!
