2018 Event

Reach Them to Teach Them exists to challenge and inspire educators and other youth workers. In these days of unprecedented change, one thing remains the same – the critical role teachers play in the lives of their students.  Reach Them to Teach Them serves area youth workers through an evening of appreciation and personal challenge held every fall at the majestic Tennessee Theatre.

The power of a positive influence can never be underestimated.  We seek to honor and inspire those who play a critical role in the lives of our children. This year we will share The Power of a Teacher!

We are currently planning and registering for our 2018 main event which will take place Monday, October 29, 2018. Use our registration event link below to learn more about The Power of a Teacher or to register.
