Veterans Reach to Teach

The Vet­er­ans Reach to Teach ini­tia­tive was cre­at­ed to low­er the large num­ber of teacher vacan­cies by con­nect­ing Vet­er­ans to those teach­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties.   The Foun­da­tion saw the oppor­tu­ni­ty to bridge the more than 532,000 vet­er­ans liv­ing in Ari­zona, with the over 1,700 vacan­cies in local schools.   Our pro­gram will assist Vet­er­ans and their spous­es earn their Sub­sti­tute Teach­ers and/or Per­ma­nent Teach­ers Cer­ti­fi­ca­tions to serve in the class­room.
