Mark Hobbs
CEO


Why RH?
RH was born out of a desire to create a space for young people to be encouraged, believed in and crucially to take the lead on projects and influence their generation.  Having worked with young people for nearly 20 years I have learnt the key to quality youth engagement is to support, inspire and develop them as leaders and give them space and opportunity to raise up the next generation.  The truth is they are the key.  We lay the foundation but they build the house.  And nothing leaves me more excited than watching a young person stepping out as a leader and inspiring someone else.

Jordan Ignatius

Strategy & Operations Manager

Why RH?
I first experienced Reaching Higher as a young person and began to volunteer in schools. It was then that I realised that young people are the very heart of the organisation. Not only this but the desires of young people have shaped what we do as an organisation and being young people led is incredibly important to me as a  member of the team. Reaching Higher believes in a youth centred approach in the way in which it works and as result, this is why I choose Reaching Higher as my place of work.

Why RH?
The sense of togetherness, the people and freedom to express yourself within your role. I mainly wanted to join Reaching Higher because of their core values of the organisation; compassion, excellence, trust, simplicity and innovation. I felt that I would have the ability to excel with these principles in place.
