Objectives

Reach out 2 Kids (ROK) is a volunteer-led charity committed to enabling children and young people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and working-class backgrounds to achieve their career aspirations.

We work with schools and businesses to help connect young people with positive black and Asian role models though a range of channels, including mentoring, workshops and industry days.

 

Activities

ROK provides hands-on information to students and young people about how to succeed in different careers.

We invite industry professionals and business people to visit schools we work with and talk to the students directly about how they succeeded in their respective fields.

 

We arrange for a varied group of black and Asian professionals to act as ROK mentors each year. These experienced and knowledgeable individuals help students to explore the concepts of success, independence and employment, explain the importance of a good CV and interviewing techniques, and provide valuable advice on finding jobs.

ROK Industry Days give students a unique insight into the world of work. For many students, these days are their first glimpse into a work environment and can have a real impact on the students that attend.
