REACH stands for Raising Education Attainment Challenge. The REACH Program at the Cornell Public Service Center is a student initiative consisting of Team Leaders, America Reads/Counts Challenge tutors (ARCC), and volunteer tutors committed to supporting community organizations and schools serving children’s academic and social needs.

The purpose of the program is to recruit and mobilize a diverse, talented group of tutors so that they may have the necessary resources, peer support, and leadership to assist in the enhancement of academic achievement of children and youth in grades pre-K-12th.

H1N1 UPDATE #4- Ben Ortiz

Hi REACH,

I just received official word that the Ithaca City School District has completely lifted the moratorium on CU volunteers!!

So, with 2 small exceptions, all REACH tutors are cleared to continue (or start) tutoring at this point.

The exceptions are volunteers at Northeast Kids Count, who are not yet allowed to visit, and the Community Nursery School, who we are going to check up on by next week.

Progress is good.
