The Reichert House is an after school program designed for youth who are in need of assistance in making the transition from adolescence to adulthood. The Reichert House is operated in a Para Military fashion. The program has a middle school and separate high school component. The Reichert House offers a combination of discipline, work, social and recreational activities which foster a balanced environment for those enrolled.
The 31-year-old program consists of about 120 students from 31 schools. Members are selected based on risk factors identified by the Florida Departments of Juvenile Justice and Children and Families, including living in neighborhoods with high crime rates, having poor academic performance and living in a single-parent, female-headed household.
