Based in London, United Kingdom, upReach is a social business that works with corporations and students in order to create employment opportunities for undergraduates while at the same time benefiting policy makers, businesses and the employers themselves. The goal is to improve access to jobs for those from those who have less access to certain professions.
"Evidence shows that equal achievement at university does not translate into equal progression into the profession," writes upReach. "What’s more, graduates from less-privileged backgrounds who do access the professions earn less." The main team members are Henry Morris, Deborah Joseph, Mark Harris who are all young professionals who believe in fair access and programming for undergraduate students so that they can achieve their goals.
