Inspiring Kids To Go On
D91 is proud to partner with Idaho Business for Education and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco on the new Within Reach program, which highlights the importance and value of a postsecondary education, whether it’s an apprenticeship or a 4-year degree. The power of the new Within Reach program is working with businesses to connect with parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles in the workplace, and highlight the importance of students “going on” after high school.
