The core purpose of the Reach Society is to encourage, motivate and inspire African-Caribbean boys and young men to own the development of their potential and make viable transitions into adult life.
About The Reach Society
The organisation was conceived by Donald Palmer, Rob Neil OBE and Dwain Neil OBE who discussed their concerns about the government’s decision to end the grant funding of the national REACH role model programme after three years. Each of them had been involved with the programme and saw its positive impact on Black boys and young Black men; and so they knew that something needed to be done to maintain this work that was transforming young lives.
Once they had conceived a model for Reach Society they lead a series of conversations with serving role models in order to identify other professional Black men who felt the same way; to test whether they would choose to continue to help boys and young men from their cultural backgrounds; and test whether they could work with the Reach Society model. In this way a movement of Black professional men choosing to help boys and young men was initiated.
Enfield Caribbean Association will be having a stand at the event, so pass by and say hello to us.
