Set up by a group of university students with a desire to make a lasting change in the community, ReachOut started out with just 20 young people from Manchester in 1994. In 2004 we expanded to London and now also work in Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Camden and Haringey with mentors from many companies and universities.
Our Mission Statement
ReachOut is a mentoring charity working with children in disadvantaged communities to raise aspirations and help them grow in character and attainment.
We improve self-confidence and develop numeracy, literacy and communication whilst reinforcing our core values of fairness, self-control, good judgement and staying power.
We do this through one-to-one mentoring with positive role models and team activities to promote leadership, trust and responsibility.
We look to make a real impact on the communities in which we work and today our structured, focused programme gives over a thousand children every year the confidence and skills they need for a brighter future.
