ReachOut is a mentoring charity supporting young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. We partner with schools to provide young people with weekly one-to-one mentoring from a volunteer mentor. ReachOut supports young people to develop their character, raise their aspirations and improve their confidence and academic attainment.
They teach our young people about four simple, powerful character strengths; Self-control, Staying Power, Good Judgement and Fairness, that enable them to make good choices, for the long term, to go on to lead good, happy and successful lives.
From their most recent impact report (2019/2020), ReachOut Youth delivered 16,980 hours of mentoring and 894 mentoring sessions.
ReachOut Youth: “The London Festival is set to be a fantastic event for all Londoners, and a true celebration of the diversity of our city. ReachOut is proud to be a charity partner as the aims of the Empower London Foundation, to break down barriers and champion inclusivity, resonate strongly with our vision for all young people, regardless of background, to be equipped with the skills and behaviours to go on to lead good, happy and successful lives.”
