FOCUS on New Haven

Our Mission:

New Haven REACH is a student-run organization that seeks to provide the information and support necessary for New Haven youth to access the higher education best suited to their dreams, potential, and ambitions. REACH was founded by graduates of the Wilbur Cross Class of 2011, and we now have Yale student volunteers who hail from all over America and all over the world. We all share the core belief that no one should be shut out from attending college just because they don't have the information and support they need to apply.

Our Activities:

College application mentorship
Direct Service
Yale undergraduate students will be paired with high school students applying to college to facilitate personalized, one-on-one college application mentorship. Yale mentors will assist students with all aspects of their college application, including essay writing, financial aid, etc.
