Reach 10 brings young adults together to create a new culture of compassion, connection, and courage to replace the shame, silence, and fear that keep people stuck in the problems of pornography.
What does the name Reach 10 mean?
Our name is a call to action – we believe that one person can make a difference as they reach out to 10 people with a message of hope and connection. We can all start with ten people who are closest to us, and then reach out to even more people as we gain confidence.
What problem are you working to solve?
Millenials are the first generation to have grown up with easy access to Internet pornography, and they are now living with the consequences.
Pornography causes serious problems in people’s lives and relationships. Unfortunately, sometimes the way we handle the issue can make problems worse rather than solve them. Our focus is real connection, open communication, and strong relationships. These are the foundation of progress on this issue.
We know most people want to help each other, they just need to know how. We share real experiences and practical ideas for how to talk about these hard issues and build healthy relationships.
We talk about 5 important relationships:
- Romantic relationships
- Family relationships
- Community leaders
What does Reach 10 actually do?
We reach out online
We create and share resources on our website that help young adults and those who love them talk about pornography in more compassionate and effective ways.
We share our message through social media to keep encouraging people to reach out.
We reach out live
Near our headquarters in Provo, Utah, we offer opportunities to get together to learn about the issue, to join with other young people who want to work together to make a difference, and to get involved with real projects that have an impact.
We bring young adults together to create solutions, and then help them share their ideas with a bigger audience. We provide leadership opportunities for young adults who want to get more involved.
We remind each other that the biggest impact we can have is when we reach out to our own friends and family.
What is our vision?
We envision a society where people feel safe to be honest and open talking about pornography issues, where we respect and support each other as whole people who are overcoming challenges, and where we are proactively preparing people to live free from pornography starting when they are young.
Who are we? More importantly, who are you?
Reach 10 was founded by Vauna Davis, an advocate for educating the public on the public health threat of pornography. She facilitates the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Prevention Task Force at the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) and served as director of Utah Coalition Against Pornography (UCAP).
As a leader on the issue, she was frequently contacted by Millenials who wanted to get involved. Seeing an opportunity to prepare a new generation of leaders to move the cause forward, she gathered a group of young adults to put their heads together, and the idea for Reach 10 was born.
Our core group of young leaders contribute their time and energy working together in the Provo, Utah area. We became a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2017 with a mission to give Millenials leadership experience and a voice for overcoming the damaging impact of pornography through connection.
