Reach is an annual Generation CashBack event, designed by young people, for young people. It aims to celebrate the youth workers and young people who have been involved with our Generation CashBack programme. Every year it is designed by a team of Young Advisors from across the consortium partners, who decide everything about the event, and help deliver it on the day. Young Advisors are trained to take the lead as event planners using our iLead pathway.

The work of local development workers has been instrumental in supporting youth groups, particularly during the last two years of the pandemic when we have seen some truly inspiring work. Events like this help us celebrate all that Generation CashBack can offer youth groups and young people.

Reach 2023 – Try Something New!

‘Reach – Try Something New!’ took place on 11th March 2023. The event was opened with a speech by the Cabinet Secretary for Justice, Mr Keith Brown, proudly wearing his Generation CashBack hoody. Workshops on offer included dance fitness, mental health and arts, STEM, basketball games, teamwork games, and household electronica. There was an awards ceremony to celebrate young people gaining their Hi5s (SCQF Level 2) because of participating. In the evening, young people were treated to entertainment including giant games, a candy bar, face painting, DJing, and more.
