R.E.A.C.H. (Resources for Enrichment, Athletics, Culture and Health) provides an organizational framework for public middle and intermediate schools to offer expanded learning opportunities during after-school hours. The initiative’s mission is to ensure all public school students in grades 6 to 8 receive the academic and community-based support they need to stay on track toward high school graduation by engaging them in a broad-base of programs and activities, outside of regular instructional hours, in the areas of academic enrichment, arts and culture, and athletics. Started in March 2013 by Lt. Governor Shan Tsutsui, the R.E.A.C.H. initiative continues to develop with support from the State and community.
R.E.A.C.H. Out Hawaii, a nonprofit corporation, was formed for the purpose of supporting the State’s R.E.A.C.H. after-school initiative for middle and intermediate schools. The Board of Directors are responsible for the oversight and strategic planning, including the development of a funding base for R.E.A.C.H. Out Hawaii.
R.E.A.C.H. Out Hawaii Board of Directors:
Lt. Governor Shan Tsutsui, Director, Dr. Tom Apple, President/Treasurer; Keith Amemiya, Director, Gregg Fujimoto, Director, Duane Kurisu, Vice President; Lori Ann Lum, Director; Tyler Tokioka, Director and Jayson Watts, Executive Director/Secretary
