Recognition Awards

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.
