CHALLENGING YOUNG PEOPLE TO BE LEADERS OF THEIR OWN LIVES.
REACHING HIGHER IS A CHARITY THAT SUPPORTS YOUNG PEOPLE AGES 10 - 21
Our aim is to challenge young people to become leaders in their own lives. We teach young people the value of transferrable skills and help them discover the skills they’ve developed from their own lived experiences.
We define leadership as the opportunity for young people to have an active and informed role in the decisions that will positively impact their future. Leadership is about helping young people navigate away from the cycle of disadvantage and recognise what opportunities are available to them. The work we do is about levelling the playing field and to do this we have to unlock the leadership potential we know exists in all young people and help them harness it in the right way.

“Reaching Higher has made a great impact on me during some difficult moments in my educational journey. Before RH started working in our school, I had difficulties working with teachers and them taking time to understand. When Reaching Higher came, they asked us about ourselves and our motivation, immediately creating a comfortable and mutual understanding environment.”
