December Community Partner of the Month: Reach Higher

First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher initiative is an effort to inspire all students in America to continue their education after receiving a high school diploma. She believes that “education is the single-most important civil rights issue that we face today,” and this initiative is working with this belief in mind.

We recently got the opportunity to partner with the Reach Higher initiative by hosting a personal statement workshop at The White House. Community and school-based partners helped students write a path toward success under this national spotlight. We were reminded why we do this work every day: because of our students. Check out more photos below from this exciting event.

Thank you to the good folks at Reach Higher for inviting us to be a part of such an inspirational mission!
