REACH

Program Description

The REACH Fellowship is an experiential education program for motivated high school students from California's Santa Barbara County that prepares them to take control of their future. REACH (which stands for Resilience, Education, Adventure, Community and Health) works with students to develop skills so they can take control of their lives as they transition from high school to college. Making the right decisions during this transition can be frustrating, confusing, and at times lonely. The REACH Team and its community partners work to provide REACH Fellows with the resources and connections they need to make informed decisions.
