Who We Are
New Haven REACH
New Haven REACH is a student-run organization that seeks to provide the information and support necessary for New Haven students to access the higher education best suited to their potential and ambitions. We 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. REACH provides college application help to local public school seniors. This support often involves essay editing, help choosing schools to apply to, and answering whatever questions mentees have about the process. We aim to assist any motivated high school student with the college application process.
Our mentees are typically seniors from New Haven public schools - we'll help any motivated student that wants help with their college applications, no matter what stage of the process they're at!
Our mentors are students at Yale University that want to help other students with their college applications. Our mentors are trained in college application mentoring and complete safety training according to Yale's Youth Program guidelines.
