 REACH ( Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen) is the first state wide needs-based mentorship and scholarship program. REACH Georgia is working to ensure that low income, academically promising students have the educational, social and financial support needed to graduate high school, gain entry to college, achieve postsecondary success and be prepared for the 21st Century workforce. REACH Georgia was launched in 2012 as a critical part of the Complete College Georgia Initiative.  REACH Georgia works with local school systems to identify academically promising students who participate in the free and reduced lunch program and would be first generation college students. What makes REACH different from other needs-based scholarship programs is our comprehensive approach. REACH scholars receive additional supports through an academic coach inside their school that monitors attendance, behavior and curriculum.   Our scholars are also paired with a local community mentor to provide a positive adult role model and encouragement.  The REACH Georgia program also looks to create unique and meaningful experiences for the scholars during their participation in the program that will contribute to their self –confidence, allow for college and career exploration and engage them in leadership training events.
