New CEO For Youth Organisation – Reach
Thursday, 8th December 2011 at 9:10 am

National Youth Organisation Reach, co-founded by football legend Jim Stynes, has appointed a new CEO.

Sarah Davies has moved from the CEO of the Australian Communities Foundation (formerly Melbourne Community Foundation) to take on the new role.

Reach is a national youth organisation providing school and community-based programs for young people and designed to promote their mental health and wellbeing.

Each year, Reach’s preventative programs impact over 57,000 young Australians, in over 580 metropolitan and regional schools and communities across the country. Participants are young people aged 10 – 18, in and outside of the school system.

Reach’s General Manager, Communication, Jodi Barry says from an exceptionally talent pool of canddiates, Davies' capabilities, experience, strengths and passion shone through!

She says Davies comes to Reach with an impressive CV spanning the business, education and community sectors. Her most recent role was CEO of the Melbourne Community Foundation. Prior to this, she held senior management positions at Growth Solutions Group, Swinburne University of Technology and Open Universities Australia.

“Davies strong profile in the community and philanthropic sectors, together with her belief in the importance and relevance of Reach's work with young people, make her the natural leader for Reach as we take on the challenges and opportunities ahead,” said Barry.

Davies replaces Gordon Lefevre who has been the Chief Executive Officer for the last 3 years.

Reach was established in 1994 by Jim Stynes OAM (AFL Brownlow Medalist, youth motivator, and Victorian of the Year 2003) and Australian film director, Paul Currie.

“At Reach, we believe in the brilliant ability of young people inspiring young people – this goes for the Crew who deliver the programs, as well as the kids who participate,” said Jim Stynes in the organisation’s Annual Report.
