Reach works with school districts and charter networks to help them grow their own pipeline of excellent teachers and effective leaders. Our degree, certification, leadership, and “whole school development” programs are designed to cultivate equity-centered educators, instructional coaches, and leaders with the skills and confidence they need to reach diverse student populations in America’s urban and rural communities.

Reach offers through its Alternatives in Action "Bay Area School of Enterprise" affiliation an acclaimed induction program leading to a California Clear Credential.
