The Reach Society is a social enterprise that seeks to encourage, motivate and inspire black boys and young Black men to realise their potential and make viable transitions into adult life.
Reach Society was founded in October 2010 by a small group of friends who are professional Black men who had successfully navigated the social, economical and emotional challenges to develop from boys to men in the UK. Along the way they learnt the essential strategies needed to develop their potential to become useful contributors to their families, local communities and the wider society.
Soon these friends attracted other professional Black men to become leading contributors in Reach Society. By choosing to draw on their diverse personal experiences, educational qualifications and professional expertise the leaders of Reach Society are confident of their ability to encourage, motivate and inspire boys and young men from their cultural backgrounds to make similar transitions.
Reach Society will offer a range of services to generate income that will be used to cover all of its operational costs; and all net income will be directed into building the capacity of the social enterprise to sustain its work in the long term.
