ReachOut is a mentoring and social mobility charity supporting young people, aged 9-16, from disadvantaged communities in London, Greater Manchester and Liverpool.

We partner with schools to provide weekly one-to-one mentoring for students referred to the programme for reasons such as low academic attainment, low confidence, behavioural issues or being in need of a positive role model. Each young person is paired with a volunteer mentor who works them one-to-one for a minimum of one academic year to help them develop their character, raise aspirations and improve their academic attainment so they can fulfil their potential and go on to lead good, happy and successful lives.

We’re always keen to hear from people from all walks of life who are interested in volunteering as a mentor.  Visit our website for more information and to sign up.
