Austrokers Ball was held last Friday 12th October in support of The Reach Foundation.
At Reach, we know that today’s world is pretty complex, and young people can experience a bunch of challenges that adults might not be able to relate to. Without opportunities for young people to become self-aware, create connections and share what’s really going on for them, adolescence can become a very difficult period with challenges that may end up defining them.
Since 1994, Reach has been running youth-led workshops to get people talking, so they can find their voice and own it. There are currently over four-million young people living in Australia, and Reach proudly works with over 40,000 of them a year.
From design through to delivery, all Reach workshops are 100% led by an engaging group of 15-25 year olds that we call ‘Crew’. The space that the Crew create during these workshops is one that allows for deeper connection, the dispelling of judgements, and builds a true sense of belonging, meaning and purpose. At the heart of it, The Reach Foundation creates new beliefs, connections and possibilities for all young people.
If you were unable to attend on Friday night and still wanted to contribute please feel free to donate. Any contribution big or small is welcome.
