Reginald Jackson
Executive Board/Founder/CEO/Executive Director

In order to offset the current course of events TEAHE was developed by Reginald Jackson, who spent the last Twenty-three years as a member of the Illinois/Indiana business community 1989 - 2004, interacting with the residents on a regular basis providing jobs to many Adults and odd jobs and safe positive activities for its local youth after school. It was from this chain of daily events that Mr. Jackson recognized the needs of Illinois/Indiana youth were great, and beyond the reach of one person, or several organizations, beyond the city schools and limited after school programs. These Youth would need a program that would bridge their Educational, personal, and recreational lives on a daily basis for many hours a day, in order to begin to reverse the effects of an ongoing cycle of poverty, crime, and low self-esteem, which many of these youth have endured for a lifetime. In 2004 Reginald turned his attention to building a youth organization, which would focus fully on helping youth, beginning with the youth of the Lake Region Area.
