This is our fourth year of partnership. PGTEF works with about 25 students per year. 99% of them go to college.
Parent Information and Resource Centers (PIRC) provide information and assistance to families to help them learn how best to support and assist their children through the educational pipeline from pre-K through college. Reach for College! supports DC PIRC in this mission and partners with them to help families focus on preparing their students for higher education and help them through the processes to get to college and graduate. Most recently RFC was one of twenty-five organizations that helped organize and put on the Family Education Expo at McKinley Technological High School.
