    Before this program, I believe I knew it all.
    I’ve never been in a position like this before, wrongfully accused, lied on, and my
    name as well as reputation was being dragged through the dirt. This program
    became my light when I was looking down that dark tunnel.
    I found a place and someone trust worthy enough for me to pour my heart to. I was able to develop strategies to deal with not only similar situations but everyday
    obstacles we meet in life. My only regret is that the sessions should be longer.

    As a volunteer Youth Worker I learned to mentor and tutor black adolescences. I often tutored students in English, grammar, time management and organizational skills.

    Through mentoring, I assisted these youths in developing their social, communication, and teamwork skills.

    As part of my responsibilities, I would counsel many of the youths in anger management, substance abuse, sexual education, and various personal matters. I also make myself available for any questions about university and the programs I was enrolled in.

    As a group I would facilitate various community forums wherein we would attempt to problem solve the various concerns within the black community. This provided a round-table for many of the adolescences to voice their opinions and feel apart of the public, ultimately promoting self-advocacy skills.

    I learned that through cooperative learning skills, patience, and honest conversations many students can overcome difficult obstacles if given the appropriate and safe environment.

    It is essential to foster and establish trust, confidence, and faith when building relationships with young people. This was a lesson that I try to incorporate with every young person with whom I developed a relationship.

    Through this experience, I forged long lasting relationships and built trust amongst the younger members. Moreover, I have incorporated the lessons learned from this experience in my classroom experiences.

    Reachout did an excellent job in dealing with my situation. They thought me how to listen, how to be calm and also to defuse any situation, how to speak to my family with respect so they could show back respect to me, how to love my wife compassionately.

    The teaching at Reachout changed my way of thinking and dealings of people. My goals are in line and I do feel better about myself with a sharper focus and aim.

    I would definitely recommend my family and friends to Reachout Program, and I thank them for helping me through my difficult and challenging period.

    Thank you Reachout

    I completed my placement at Reachout Committee during my time with National Academy of Health & Business, I had the most amazing experience working for Reachout.
    Volunteering at Reachout Committee has helped me build my self confidence and my counselling
    skills, working with Reachout I was able to work as a professional person and was able to take feedback from my boss Angela for my self improvement. With Reachout I was able to work directly
    with youth and older adults which allows me to develop meaningful relationship with the clients and provides positive influence with all the clients I came into contact with.
    I learned so much from Angela, she is a very hard worker and she loves people, she gives them 100% of her self and time to everyone, very wonderful person may God continue to Bless her and provide for her Love you Angie.

    Reach our gave me a place to gain volunteer hours for school while discovering the true meaning of giving back to a community. I have never met such an amazing and selfless person like Angela Thorpe, executive director of Reachout. She is constantly working hard and will do whatever is needed to help you succeed. Angela always puts her volunteers and her community ovee her self, and it shows at the annual fundraisers.

    Thank you Angela Thorpe for always being there for me!

    Angela Thorpe, executive director of Reachout, is an outgoing, dynamic, hard working individual that has been a pleasure to work with. I have known Angela for over seven years and she has taught me the value of dedication and hard work. From the Walk for Peace to the annual Christmas dinners and Back to School BBQ, Reachout has taught me the necessity to provide support to our troubled youth in the community reaching out to them when the society has rejected and stigmatized them. As a Reachout member I learned to help coordinate these activities, soliciting donations from corporate sponsors for all our events. The students appreciate the dynamics of our organisation as they try to obtain community service hours. It is a pleasure to watch this organisation grow from year to year and I truly appreciate Angela for all her efforts.

    As a Social Service Worker In practice, the Most High had a placement for me during my college year. In 2010, Reachout Committee welcomed me with open arms, and gave me the platform to develop hands on as a professional. Angela had many programs in place, which made it easy for me to apply my knowledge and tools that was required to work in a social system. Social systems, weren't always easy, but I've gained all the necessary training to manage complex environments because of Reachout. It took a short time for my courage level to excel, thanks to Angela. Now I have the willpower to face and conquer all social challenges, no matter the level or circumstances.

    We know the youth population has it's up and downs due to social, systemic and political structures, but despite that Angela always had compassion for that population, which is an essential attribute in the social work field. I was so honoured to have such developments passed on to me, whereas my level of growth cognitively is now at an all time high.

    Thanks Too Angela For giving me the opportunity to conduct intakes and assessments, going to court with the goal to provide services to our youth trapped in the judicial system, performing outreach duties dealing with many donors who respects and appreciates the Reachout Mission, going to schools throughout the GTA and providing community hour opportunities for students, and facilitating workshops and forums for yearly events.

    Angela...... Your ground work is a true representation of "It Takes A Community To Raise A Child" and I am blessed to have experienced the outlets you have built to allow me and many others to become professionals at its best.

    7 year later in my career working with clients as an Evening Support Worker for Addictions and Mental Health and a Child and Youth Worker.

    Thank You For Being There �

    I completed my placement at Reachout Committee during my third year of university and had the most amazing experience. Volunteering at Reachout helped me build so many skills that are essential for working with youth, a career path that I am passionate about. I was able to grow as a person and professional, and received meaningful feedback and guidance from Angela every step of the way. Angela provided me with practical, hands on experience working with youth that I wouldn't have been able to get elsewhere as a student. I was able to work directly with youth by conducting intake and needs assessments, which allowed me to develop meaningful relationships with the clients at Reachout. I was also able to attend court on many occasions, which was a very exciting experience that really taught me a lot. Attending court definitely expanded my understanding of the court process, and allowed me to build meaningful connections in the field. I was able to observe court cases and understand how Reachout can best serve our clients.

    I learned so much working alongside Angela - she is such a hard worker and her passion and dedication to the youth that she works with cannot be understated. Even after completing my 100 hours of placement, I continued my involvement with Reachout because the work that Angela is doing is so important. Angela is doing amazing work at Reachout, and is truly benefiting so many lives.

    I am forever grateful to Angela and all that she has taught me, and for guiding me every step of the way during my time at Reachout. I will never forget all of the many life lessons that she has taught me. Angela, you are an amazing person and your tireless commitment to improving the well-being of others is so admirable. Thank you for all that you have done for me and taught me! You continue to inspire me as I pursue a career working with youth, and I am motivated to follow in your footsteps!

    I did my Child and Youth Work placement with ReachOut back in 2011. It really was an incredible learning experience for me! My favourite part was the hands on experience Angela allowed myself and the other students to have. Alot of other agencies don't give students such experiences. I enjoyed going to court and reaching out to the youth and their parents. Sitting and hearing their cases was exciting to me because it allowed me to gain more knowledge about the court system but mostly about them. Seeing clients that I have referred to reachout from court, actually come in to the office was a sign that my help, the help of Reachout was needed and accepted. Angela gave me a chance to grow and learn all while making mistakes along the way.

    Besides my experience as a student being a positive one Angela is an amazing human being. Seriously! It's rare that you find someone who cares so much about making a difference in the lives of our youth, especially in today's society! Her hard work dedication endless work hours should never go unnoticed! YOU ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED ANGELA! Thank you for all you have done and all you continue to do!

    Omg where should I start!!!?? I did my placement at reachout committee and I am glad I got the chance to, although it's not a big organization trust me 0Angela makes big moves to help every and anyone that she comes incontact with.I started out as a placement student not knowing I would become a client, and I say this without being shameful because I was/am satisfied with the help I received and still is receiving no matter how small it was/is. When I got pregnant and my family threw me out Angela was the only mother figure I could talk to seeing that most of my family members were back home including my mom. She gave me some very good advice reassuring me that everything was gonna be ok and I would get through my phrase in due time. Being a single mom and a new-comer to Canada my options and resources were kinda limited I was confused and was just in a bad place. None the less, she made sure that I got my food supplies, pampers etc which I was/am truly grateful for. Without the help of reachout I don't know how would I have survived. I can tell you this Angela stopped a lot of hungry days for me! And I just want to say continue to do the best you can I know your changing lives each and every day. Thank you Angela and Reachout Committee.

    The Reachout Committee is a wonderful community based organization, and I had the great priveledge of being part of it.

    The organization's works and what it does for the community is beyond amazing; from assissting individuals and families through multiple aspects such as providing basic needs (food, clothing, etc.), mentoring, counselling, or even just and open ear to listen.

    Reachout provides various opportunities to ALL members of the community through their daily tasks and activities to annual events they hold.

    As a former student working with Reachout, I was exposed to the reality of our social, and justice system and all the individuals who are impacted. I was given the opportunity to work with individuals in need, especially the youth; which at times was an emotional "roller-coaster", but in the end of it all, a rewarding feeling that is greatly unexplainable.

    With this organization, I was able to expand the opportunities and lives of others, including my own. Reachout has allowed positive growth in myself and future endeavors.

    Angela has one of the biggest hearts I know, and does everything she can to make POSITIVE change for others!

    Thank you Angela for your mentorship, knowledge, and all you do for the community. It has truly been an honour to work with you and the organization.

    Your Friend Always,

    Richmar M.

My time there was well spent and thank you Angela for helping be a better person in society.... I really appreciate your knowledge and how you impact my life moving forward....I wish you more growth and more success with your great idea if giving back to the community.

    Anyone who knows Angela can agree that she is the most selfless, kind hearted, hardworking person you will ever meet. She goes above and beyond for everyone and always does her best to make sure she is making a positive impact on the lives of other.

    Miss Thorpe always has her doors and heart open. She is selfless and has a heart of gold. I remember going to Miss Thorpe many times with my questions and concerns and never was she too busy to answer and give me advice. I've known Miss Thorpe for 15 years plus and she's never stopped giving back to her community she's a clear example of humanity and good grace at its best. With Gods good grace I hope God continues to bless her and keep her. Amen

    Last year it was difficult to hold down a job. My illness which is Bipolar disorder had a hold over my life. I had no control over anything in my life it was spiralling out of control. I started making God a priority and I was making the effort to pray and I started taking my medication on a regular basis. Later that year I found a job I've been working there for over a year and I'm going on 5 years with no hospitalizations God is good.

    I would like to thank Angela and Reachout Committee for the instrumental role they have played in my life. I was introduced to this committee over 5years ago through my placement and have remained active in all the community outreach programs, back to school bbq, and yearly Christmas dinner just to name a few ever since. Being involved with this committee has afforded me the opportunity to learn and understand more about the justice system by being present in a courtroom settings on multiple occasions. I was also able to provide assistance to youths through one on one and group facilitation. Angela has always maintained an open door policy with her interns and clients which has created a very warm and welcoming environment for everyone who has come in contact with reachout. I feel truly blessed to be apart of this committee because i have witnessed first hand how many lives it has positively impacted through the services offered. Angela is able to build rapports with the youths by letting them know she is always there for them. Thank you Reachout Committee for playing such an instrumental role in our community. So many lives are impacted daily through Angela's generosity and warmth! I am proud to be apart and to know Angela! Thanks. T

    After meeting Anglea and taking part of the reach out committe I have learned many lessons and key goals that help me on daily routines. Angela has made me realize a lot of things and has guided me through rough times that most people would not due in the present times we live in. Just knowing someone like Angela is always there devoting her time towards helping many people from the community to also being a role model for many young adults is amazing. Angela has helped me achieve many goals that I set which is why she is the person I can believe will always help to the fullest, all the positive vibes she brings is what truly people need to have around them. I have only known Angela for few years and through out these few years I could always depend on Angela for help for anything from school to real life advice. Angela is a family member and a friend in both. Angela is execellent at what she does, for many and I thank her for this so much because she loves what she does and puts in all her effort which is exactly what other people should do. Everyone should be more like Angela, its a blessing. Thanks for always being there Angela I would have never known about reach out committe if it wasn't for you. Thanks

    Reachout committee was my first volunteer experience. Angela or should I call her an angel. She was my mentor to become an active Canadian citizen. I learned from Angela the importance of volunteer and giving back to the community. Angela was my second mother, a very loving woman that help youth to gain confidence, learn to help other people, and become great leaders. I will forever be thankful towards Angela and all the great things she had taught me, which made me who I am today.

    I have been a part of Reachout for over a decade now (though not as active as I used to be) but from the very beginning with Freestyle Fridays, the Thorpe house was always a fun and welcoming place to go and discuss subjects that mattered to us youth and affected us on many levels including emotionally, spiritually, mentally, etc. I don't think I've ever encountered anyone who cares about the youth as much as Angela Thorpe. She is a most passionate advocate and positive example for our youth. Reachout has come so far and achieved so much since it's inception. I'm proud to be a part of such an influencial and growing organization

    Angela Thorpe is very blessed women. I love her and I thank her for always being there and helping me, and supporting me in any and everyway for over 10 years. Words can't explain the love I have for this blessed women who i would do anything for, she is more than a friend she is like a mother to me. I know that the work she does for me and for all the youth out there and young adults, the support she gives, strong words of encouragement, she does it all from the heart with love; and that's what really matters most. That's why when you come to her for help and advice, you don't have to worry or doubt she is doing this all from her heart and she will do whatever she can to help, that's why the vibe is always positive and blessed, everyone around her is happy and smiling. Continue doing your beautiful work and stay strong. Thank you very much , I love you and God bless.

It is a great organization where one can see improvement in themselves and the society we live in. I have close to reachoutt for over 6 years .

Angela is professional yet personal and great facilitator who has helped me alot

    If anyone looking for a placement for school, Reachout is the perfect place! it has great community base and court base, if that's something that you are looking for. Since being with Reachout I learned so much about the court system, truly grateful for all the knowledge that Angela gave me. Without Reachout I don't believe that it would have been possible for me to require the job that I have today as a court reporter. I would like to thank Angela for believing in me and always being someone that I can trust and talk too.
    Thank you soo much Angela, your the best :)

    Anyone considering participating in Anger management program or partner abuse program should not hesitate joining for even a moment. Once you start the sessions, you will notice improvements in your life right away. Reachout Committee has professionals who are expert in this area and has a tremendous amount of experience working with folks from all kinds of backgrounds. This helps to keep the sessions as productive as possible - with the right blend of tools and study. Professional providing opportunity to better understand how to deal with their anger, in what situations might it arise and what methods work best for them in handling those scenarios. The sessions is for everyone, whether anger is an issue for you or not. Once you start the sessions you will realize the rewards are truly invaluable. It helped me to learn how to deal with my anger. Instead of just bursting at the seams and letting it all out, I have learned how to control it and not make a situation any worse than it already is. I have also used what I have learned in other areas of my life. I would highly recommend Reachout committee to anyone looking to make a lasting change in this area in their life.

    DEV (Wednesday, 18 January 2017 12:50)

    One thing I have learned throughout my four years of high school is giving back to your own community. Being a part of Reachout Committee allowed me to do just that. This is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization, speaking up to the conflicts and violence that the African Canadian youth community. I took the initiative and decided to volunteer at Reachout Committee during the summer of 2014-2015. I was chosen for the summer recruitment program and I was delighted for this opportunity because even if it was just for a few hours per week, I was directly making a positive impact to those in my community.

    Volunteering at Reachout Committee came with many tasks and provided me with room to improve upon many skills. I learned many new expertise such as organizing files, filing papers, sending e-mails to convince major businesses to sponsor, and organizing many events. One of those events being the “2015 Community Back to School Barbecue.” I was given various tasks and I accomplished each one to the best of my abilities. I learned how to send out convincing e-mails to various businesses and I got a major sponsor, Crayola, to donate crayons for all the kids. I made appealing posters to advertise this event and attracted many people to donate or come show their support at the event. Further, I helped make backpacks for all the 35 children that were participating in this event and accomplished my goal of giving back to our community. My commitment to Reachout Committee was shown as I helped follow through this project until the very end. Moreover, this experience demonstrates my leadership and willingness to provide a service for others.

    I have learned so much from this fulfilling experience, but my biggest achievement was bringing a smile to the faces of those youths we helped out during the event. Many in our community exist in poverty and unemployment, hence helping create an event where I knew I was making a difference gave me happiness. There is still much work to be done to help those struggling in today's population and in the future, I hope to be part of more events like this.

    Reachout has helped me in a number of ways. When I first came in I was very angry, Insecure, and frankly didn't see the need for help. Reachout has helped me identify certian things that were haunting me for years, in just a few weeks. Everyone here is very uplifting. Even when working you don't even feel like you are working because of the atmosphere here. The sessions I was fortunate enough to participate in helped me create ways to cope with my anger, and helped me figure out that everyone has moments of weakness. Although my sessions are now over. I can't thank Paulette and Angela enough for the constant help, uplifting atmosphere, and great smiles they give everytime I came. Doing this program changed the way I think, and who I have become.

    Thank you again,

    Dear Reachout and Angela.

    I would like to extend my gratitude not only to the Reachout community but also to Angela for providing an environment and an opportunity for individuals like myself to strive at. Through working with Reachout I have realized the effects a decision can have on people as well as affecting them in a good way being able to help individuals who are in need .In the community helps need give a strong sense of pride as well as appreciation for myself. To see the difference we can make in ourselves and also our community is an experience that words can’t really describe.

    Before being introduced to the reach Out committee, I was constantly lying and not listening to the people older than me. In the program I was introduced to Angela, who by the way is an amazing woman she is not only caring but she helps you out when you dont know how to do something she would tell you and show how to do it. The reach out program has helped me change and and start from the beginning as a new person.

    Before coming to Reach Out committee, I've got to be honest, I never did like volunteering. I was very nervous the first time I walked through the door. I didn't know I what to expect. Let me tell you, Angela has made me feel so welcomed. I don't even think of it as volunteering any more. I love coming in to help out. This environment is so friendly, being myself is definitely not a problem. To add to that, each time I visit, I learn something new, how great is that!! Thank you Angela for giving me this opportunity. It really shows me that I can actually make a difference, one visit at a time. (:

    The Reach Out Committee has been helping me become a better citizen of the community for about 4-5 years now, and if theirs something to be said about this organization it has to be that it is one of the few places that brings a sense of community and belonging from the second someone walks through the door, to the second they leave. Angela, with her understanding personality she is able to do more than just provide a place to do hours, but has the ability to make us want to come back rather than have to. As long as this organization is still going on I will be trying my best to help out and continue with them, because once one start to work with Reach Out, they end up becoming apart of the family. Thank you Angela for all of your hard work, and understanding over the years, and I know this doesn't have to be said, but don't ever change!

    I am a young black youth. I’ve been coming to Reachout since the year 2012. I just can’t get enough of Angela. She is awesome. She is always more than kind and helpful with hours being completed, and also with socializing. I feel I can to talk to Angela or anyone at Reachout about anything that comes to mind. Although Angela moved locations, no matter what facility this goes to, it’s always going to feel as comfortable as home. Angela needs to invest in more facilities like this to place around Canada for young black youths.

    The Reachlout Committee is an amazing organization, that really is here for us, the youth. The people here are extremely friendly and are really down to earth. I look forward into coming here for their sick events.

    Im not sure exactly when I first met Angela or when I was introduced to Reachout,
    but I have been overwhelmed with how much Angela has helped me throughout the
    years. Weather I need food or help with my CSO, Angela and The Reachout Committee
    have been there for me and a few of my friends as well. I will try my hardest to contribute
    to a great community program that continues to receive great support simply because Reachout is a great program and it delivers results.
    Thank you so much Angela and Reachout we all appreciate the help we receive

    I love reachout committee. This organization is amazing, and Angela makes it even more stunning. I learned the meaning of volunteer from Angela. Also, I met a lot of new people, and made more friends. I learned to become responsible through handling different tasks like: making flyers, help with organizing for events, and help organizing data. Just saying you will feel like you owned a second family, really!
    P.s. miss you Angela

    I was introduced to Reachout since 2010, Reachout is a great organization and raised awareness regarding youth of today. Angela is caring, compassionate, and she is always there for me when I am in need. I am very grateful and happy that I am a member of Reachout as I have learned many lessons that I will carry through life. Reachout had hold many events, such as walk for peace and had held BBQ parties, in which help the community come together. Reachout is also updated in what is happening in the community and always showed professionalism. Angela and the Reachout community are just like a second family to me, I would definitely recommend Reachout to anyone. Thank you Angela, may more blessings and happiness to come this year :)

    We were introduced to Reachout through a family member over 2 years ago and throughout this period the organization has helped our family get through hard times more times than I can remember. The first time we met Angela we got the impression that she was a really busy person that doesn't have much time to spare but I have to say that she is very empathetic, caring and always takes the time to understand our needs as a family and is always able to help and make our life a lot easier and show us hope in tough times.
    We always enjoy the events & outings (that are always well organized) and we very much appreciate all the giveaways espesially the school supplies and lots more that are very much needed thoughout the year, our son is being raised in a better community thanks to Reachout because afterall it really does take a community to raise a child!

    P.S we are all looking forward to the Xmas party

    Thanks Angela and God Bless!

Just a suggestion maybe the Volunteers could do some activities with the Children & Parents next time. Please keep me posted about the Christmas Event!!
    Thanks again to Miss Angela and the rest of the Reach out Committee Team.
    God Bless!!

    Well where to start, I guess it would here at Reachout I have a been with reachout since january did my co-op placement here and from my experice it has been a great one going to court watching cases here and there seeing how what we can take from that case and apply it to helping the youths. Reachouts mission is to help those youth in trouble and put them in the right path, Angela does go above and beyond her normal responsibilities which makes her admirable and a wonderful role model for anyone.
    I am pleased to be a part of this organization always learning something and it always feels good to have helped those in need so thank you angela and reachout

    p.s Hi angela

    I am lucky to say that I am a member of Reachout Committee. Angela has not only taught me a lot about myself, but also about the field. Everyday here is a new learning experience and I am thankful for that. Angela inspires me because she puts others before herself and always wants to make a difference in the lives of others. Being here has been by far the best experience I have had. I recommend coming to Reachout for anyone intrested in the field or if you need community hours. Thank you Angela!

    I have been a reach out member for 3 years and I have nothing but to share my positive experience. After joining and completing my 40 hours, I decided to become an active member for 3 years. It has been a great honour to be part of such a great organization. Reach out provides for the many in need in our local community and continues to be a great resource for the youth. Reach out allows many individuals to give back to our community as well as learn more about the surroundings. I have made many great friends here and I will continue to cherish those memories. Thank you so much Angela for providing me with such a great experience.

    Initially, I was introduced to Miss Angela by a friend because I wanted to complete my community hours. However, I am elated to testify that Miss Angela gave me exceedingly more than just hours, she showed me love and care. The Gravity of her benevolence is outstanding, she is like a second Mom to me and have blessed me in many ways. God has truly blessed me by placing her in my life. Thank you Reachout Committee for EVERYTHING!!

    My experience at Reachout Committee has been a positive one. I worked for Angela since 2009. She is a fun, loving, and dynamic individual and has made my experience worthwhile. I have loved coordinating events (attending Freestyle Friday meetings) and administrative work at Reachout. The youth can obtain community hours with our organization. Watching Reachout grow and develop over the years has been rewarding. It does indeed take a community to raise a child and we follow this closely with every youth we encounter.

    Reachout has helped many of my friends including me to stay out of trouble. Reachout is like a second home because over the last 2 ½ years that I have been involved with Reachout I’ve learned a lot of things like self control and team work. I always bring up Reachout to family and friends who need to volunteer for school or other reasons. Reachout also helps with counselling and helps provide food for us. I also feel like Reachout is a second home for me because everyone there is supportive and helps us make good decisions.

    Firstly when I came to Canada 3 years ago I started to volunteer in Reachout Committe with Angela, and she did not only give me the hours for graduation, but also she give me the opportunity to know more about the community. Also, I had the chance to know Canada more and I got involved in more than an activity and that gave me a lot of experience in my resume. So, I want to thank Angela very much for her help and support.

    I originally got Angela's number from a friend, immediatly I called her and she invited me into her office. Luckily I live so close to the Reachout Committee that I went there just to meet her. From the moment I walked in I was greeted with a smile and a hello.
    Reachout Committee changed my life, if it was not for Angela and the Reachout Committee I would not be in the wonderful place that I am in now. Thank you Angela and the Reachout Committee for all the advice and support and I wish the best of luck for this organization in the future.
    Yours Truly,

    At Reachout, I have learned and experienced so may new things! I have learned how it is to actually work, how hard it can be, how fun it can be, you get to meet new people, you get to try new things, and I meet some new people as well! It was a great experience! Before, I used to go because I wanted hours but after 1 visit, I started looking forward to going to Reachout! It was great! I got to help many people out that needed donations and I also got to be part of many events! I loved it there and I can't wait to go back next year to volunteer!
