Within Our Reach 8 Hours is structured, yet flexible and couple-centered.  WOR8 is based on Within Our Reach, which was originally designed for relationship education with lower income couples.  We have found that WOR is a terrific model for all couples, with it’s highly engaging teaching style.  Supporting multiple learning styles, couples learn through activities and skills practice, as well as tightly presented lessons.
