“My mentor really helps me, she is always encouraging me to be confident” Rawan, Y6 Mentee.

You can support someone like Rawan to grow in confidence this December by taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge. We’re aiming to raise £10,000 in just one week to pay for 10 young people, like Rawan, to attend ReachOut for the whole year.

About the Projects

We work with partner schools in disadvantaged communities supporting young people aged 9-16 with tailored 1:1 mentoring. They are referred to us if they for one of the following reasons; low academic attainment, low confidence, low self-esteem, poor behaviour, fragmented home life, or because their teachers believe they would benefit from the support of a role model.

Donations to ReachOut Projects London will be generously matched by our supporters & Big Give Champion, The Childhood Trust during the campaign meaning your money can support twice as many young people.

“My mentor has helped me through the year with my communication and public speaking skills e.g. when we done our mentor share together, working through this helped me with my confidence.”

How can you get involved?

Visit ReachOut’s campaign page here and make a donation from 12pm (midday) on #GivingTuesday (30th November). The campaign will close at 12pm on Tuesday 7th December.

“At first, I was really hesitant to take on the Project Leader role, despite having mentored with ReachOut. However, with the support of the team I’ve really developed my skills. For example, at the Mentee Graduation, I stood up in front of 200 people and presented an award which is something I would never ever have been able to have done before, and isn’t an opportunity I could gain in my other situations.”

Amy McCutcheon, Project Leader at ReachOut Academy, Dean Trust Ardwick, Manchester.


“Being able to spend the summer working at Rede Partners, was an amazing experience. Whether it was working in HR or Finance, I learned so much about the world of private equity, made great connections with fantastic people and I got to learn first-hand what it would be like to work there! I really believe that I can go onto build the career I want now I’ve been a part for a workplace for real”

Victor Adekunle, 18 years old, ReachOut Ambassador, London


“When I first my mentee, she was very reluctant to participate in the sessions. Now, I see a completely different person! Her confidence has grown and she is happy to join in! She still has some self-doubt when it comes to academic work, but that’s what I hope to help her overcome, because she is a very bright person!

Through mentoring, I’ve learnt I’m a lot more patient than I realised. There will be days where she refuses to participate and those are the days that I really see the importance of the character strengths, for both the mentees and the mentors. It also makes it easier for the mentee to understand the character strengths, when I use them myself”

Myrtle, ReachOut Club mentor at Tufnell Primary School, London


“There are more distractions than ever outside of school, and the commitment of our students to attend ReachOut sessions is testament to the value they place on the relationships they foster there, and the challenge and enjoyment they provide.

ReachOut’s focus on communication skills and character development has become an important aspect of our provision of support for these students. The opportunity to relate to a positive role- model other than their usual teachers is key to the programme’s impact, and the evidence of this has been seen in the students’ attendance, resilience and to their overall progress across all the subjects in the school.”

Thomas Janvrin, Assistant Vice Principal at the Petchey Academy London
