ReachOut

ReachOut work with partner schools in London and Manchester who refer children to ReachOut for reasons such as low confidence, low academic attainment, disruptive behaviour or because their teachers believe they would benefit from having a positive role model in their lives. They are matched with a volunteer mentor and meet once a week after school for an hour to work on English, Maths and character building exercises. We run 54 projects in 30 schools for over 600 children each academic year.

Founded 1994

    We do this through one-to-one mentoring with positive role models and team activities to promote leadership, trust and responsibility.
