Students lifting up students.
Low income students are at a heavy disadvantage in school. Let's close the achievement gap with free tutoring.
Already have a chapter at your school? Sign up to tutor!
Students from lower income households can score 6 grade levels worse than their peers on standardized tests. We want to fix this.
Every student deserves the right to succeed in the classroom.
Reach Out is a charity organization founded and run by students. We tutor in low income schools to close the achievement gap.
"The students are always excited to see their tutors and motivated to improve in their studies."

"Students Reaching Out to Lift Up Other Students"
“Let’s close the Achievement gap.”
Besides the fact that more and more students are volunteering and the need for youth volunteers continues to grow, there are tons of reasons to start a Reach Out chapter. Our mission at Reach Out is to “Help close the achievement gap by offering free tutoring in low-income communities”. This gap is a serious problem. We think it’s total BS that poor and minority students are not being empowered and educated at the same level that the rest of the country is. So much for an equal playing field, eh? If you don’t believe me, here is a recent Stanford study on the achievement gap. According to this study, lower income students are on average 4–8 YEARS behind their peers in math, reading, and science. And it’s only getting worse year over year.
That’s crazy. It makes sense though, they don’t have the resources to hire tutors and their schools won't have as many resources. How do you expect a low-income kid to get help with his 5th grade with the current tutoring rates of $50–100/hour?? You can’t. Most people can’t. So, I created Reach Out, to help fight this achievement gap. Imagine if everyone was set on an equal playing field; imagine what we’d be able to accomplish. This is why you should open a Reach Out chapter.
