|Abstract||The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of the reach-out program in supporting students during the COVID-19 pandemic. An explanatory sequential mixed method approach was employed, combining the collection of quantitative and qualitative data. Quantitative data was obtained through survey questionnaires administered to 50 students, while qualitative data was gathered from 10 students via semi-structured interviews. The study's results revealed that the reach-out program had a positive influence on students' learning experiences throughout the pandemic. Specifically, the program facilitated effective utilization of time for academic pursuits such as reading and writing. Nevertheless, the investigation also revealed that a lack of resources, including television, smartphones, and financial means, hindered students' capacity to learn from home. Based on these findings, it is recommended that the reach-out program be continued in the post-COVID-19 era to extend its reach to students who may have otherwise remained underserved. This study highlights the significance of providing support to students during crises like the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the importance of addressing resource disparities that can impede students' learning opportunities.|
