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.
