Reach Foundation

Reach, a non-profit organisation, was established in 1994 by Jim Stynes OAM (AFL Brownlow Medalist, youth motivator, and Victorian of the Year 2003) and Paul Currie (drama coach and film director). By creating 'safe spaces' and a positive peer group experience for young people, Reach provides an environment where they can have a great time, develop trust and openness, and feel comfortable enough to express their concerns, discuss their aspirations and recognise that they are not alone. Reach's work is derived from a variety of psychodynamic models including Adlerian psychology, NLP and psychodrama. The conceptual framework that drives the programs is based on the Hero's Journey, a seven-stage model originally developed by Joseph Campbell.
