Is this you?

  • Passionate, courageous
  • Strategic, lateral thinking
  • A leader and a coach of people
  • Resilient and positive

An exciting full-time opportunity exists for a highly-skilled professional to join the Reach team, in our Sydney office.

Being young is not without its struggles. Today’s world is pretty complex and young people can experience a bunch of challenges that adults might not be able to relate to. One of the biggest hurdles is just having the confidence and support to be who they want to be.

There are currently over 4 million young people living in Australia, and Reach works with over 40,000 of them a year. We have over 250 of them working for us; designing and delivering workshops in schools and the community. Our workshops are 100% youth-led, from design through to delivery, and the community we create out of these workshops is one that allows for deeper connection, a sense of belonging, and the dispelling of judgements. A preventative, instead of having to focus on symptoms in adult life.

Our Vision

Generations of confident self-aware and passionate young people shaping the world.
