Chelsea Public Schools - Bridge to Success
Chelsea REACH Program

REACH Annual Report.

Chelsea REACH grew out of a special community planning process, initiated by the Hyams Foundation, to create a new resource in Chelsea to support young people in graduating from high school with aspirations and goals for the future. Chelsea REACH was designed as a partnership between the Chelsea Public Schools and local community-based organizations and has also involved young people, parents, public officials and business leaders in its development and oversight.

REACH's six key components are:

  • School Success/College Preparation
  • Career Awareness/Preparation
  • Family Inclusion
  • Community Collaborations/Case Management
  • Leadership Development and Staff Development
  • Healthy Living/Skills for Life
