PIE of the Month: REACH Scholars (L-R): REACH Scholars Ayeley Theodora Afantchao, Paloma Barron-Galvan, Isaac Ruiz, Imelda Razo, Kaylee Bautista. The REACH program (Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen) was launched in 2012 as a part of Governor Nathan Deal’s Complete College Georgia initiative. The program provides Georgia’s low income, academically promising students with the academic, social and financial support needed to graduate high school, access college and achieve post-secondary success. This program is structured to help communities build a well-educated, highly trained workforce for the future. REACH partners with the local school systems and has become the first "dual" Partner in Education with the Gainesville City and Hall County Schools. REACH identifies rising 8th grade scholars, and schools provide access to an academic coach who monitors attendance, behavior and curriculum to ensure they stay on track for college attainment. The community provides access to positive character and leadership building skills through a mentor that meets with the scholar on a regular basis. Throughout their participation, the scholars are engaged in unique and meaningful experiences that contribute to their college and career development as well as life skills. This fall, Gainesville City and Hall County School Systems will announce 13 scholars to participate in the program. Our community investment of $45,500 will be matched with an investment at the state level of $84,500. These funds will provide each scholar a $10,000 scholarship that can be utilized at any Georgia HOPE eligible institution. In five years, Gainesville and Hall County will have 65 scholars who will be the workforce in the community. reachga.org
