About me:
Imagine school assignments that allow kids to roam the globe and learn about interesting places and people while studying math, science, or reading. Through Reach the World’s (RTW) programs, thousands of elementary and middle school students in New York City and Chicago public schools are doing just that!

Reach the World is an educational non-profit that exposes socially and racially isolated inner-city students to countries, cultures, people, environments, and wildlife from around the world. We do this by connecting students via the internet to real-world expeditions traveling across the globe. These expeditions develop exciting, age-appropriate social studies and science materials that teachers integrate in the weekly curriculum.

This year, over 2,250 Chicago Public School students are following the Bike Africa Expedition, an 8,000 mile, unsupported pedal-bike trip from Cape Town to Cairo. As the four Bike Africa crewmembers travel, they serve as the “eyes and ears” for students and teachers. Each week, expedition team members:
• research and write educational articles that are posted on our website
• answer student questions via email
• collect primary source information for classroom research projects
• video-conference with students back in the states

In conjunction with our online materials, Reach the World also provides support services to over 80 partner classrooms in Chicago including:
• two classroom visits from the expedition team
• classroom interns from local colleges and universities
• technology support
• field trips
• teacher professional development

Reach the World provides all services free of charge to schools.
