Currently they engage over 40,000 young people each year through their range of School and Community workshops, all of which are 100% crafted and delivered by young people, for young people. This Peer-to-peer workshop delivery enables The Reach Foundation to create judgement free spaces that allow for deeper connection with participants, and a sense of belonging for all.

Corporate Social Responsibility has become a buzz-word of late, especially with the millennial audience and in smaller communities. This session will cover the wide range of workshops that The Reach Foundation deliver in both metro and rural locations, as well as some of the ways that organisations and businesses in the community can begin to implement meaningful CSR into their everyday activities and make a difference to both their bottom-line, and community.
