Project REACH (Realizing Equitable Access to Cybersecurity in High School) is a feeder program that connects K-12 schools to minority serving institutions' cybersecurity and computer science programs in an effort to close the diversity gap in cybersecurity. CYBER.ORG facilitates the relationship between high school classrooms and their local minority serving institution through cybersecurity activities, classroom support, campus visits, and more.

While the nation faces a growing need to fill a gap in cyber-workforce shortages, there is a greater need for the nation to address the lack of diversity seen in cyber professions.

Project Access aims to support programming options of local and state agencies by offering cyber education opportunities for blind and visually impaired students through immersive experiences that are fully compatible with assistive technology such as screen readers or magnification software. This gives blind and visually impaired students the confidence and knowledge necessary to pursue higher education and technology careers.
