On Saturday, 19 October, in Kensington a capacity audience of roughly 200 guests attended Reach Society's 8th Recognition Awards dinner.
The University of Glasgow's reparative justice programme will transform lives in the Black community.
The first project emerging from the collaboration between the University of Glasgow and Reach Society is the James McCune Smith Scholarships for British students of African Caribbean background who are admitted to undergraduate degree courses in 2019.
The comprehensive recognition framework (or recognition awards) is designed to fulfil two objectives:
Firstly, Reach Society wishes to encourage and recognise self development in young people, with particular emphasis on Black boys and young Black men.
Secondly, Reach Society wishes to recognise those who have a history of service to its development or have made extra-ordinary contributions to it.
There are two sets of recognition awards - one for self development, which will be awarded to children and young adults; and the other for extra-ordinary contributions and long service to Reach Society.
Nominations would be most welcome from parents, mentors, teachers, youth workers or anyone who is in regular contact with young people.
To learn more obtain these recognition awards; and how to nominate a young person please contact Dr Dwain Neil OBE, director, foundation programme - 07949-431-992 or via email: email@example.com
