Q: What does I'm reaching out you. mean?
A: We would not say 'I'm reaching out you', the correct saying is 'I'm reaching out to you'.

'I'm reaching out to you' means to initiate contact with somebody. It can be likened to 'asking for help' or 'asking to help' depending on the context.

For example:

"I reached out to my friend today, as I had not heard from her for a while." - It means I reached out to check on her, to see if she is okay.

"I'm struggling to cope with the stress from school, so I'm reaching out to you for help." (Perhaps said to a teacher or classmate)

"Thanks for reaching out to me." - This means 'thanks for your help' or 'thanks for asking to help'

"To reach out to" roughly means 'To ask to help' or 'To ask for help'

This was difficult to explain, I hope it made sense and can help you! (:
Q: What does reach mean?
A: So reach can have three meanings. One is a verb form that means you are attempting to grab something with your hands. For example, you reach up to get the box off the top shelf. It can also be used to describe an object that is close enough to you to grab without really moving. For example, the coffee cup on the table in front of you is within your reach.

The second is used as a verb to describe you getting somewhere, such as the top of a mountain. For example, he climbed Mount Everest and reached the top!

The third is used to describe someone meeting their goals. For example, if your goal was to run a 4 minute mile and you managed to do it, you could say you reached your goal.

Hope this helps!
