Every young person should have the chance to embrace exciting opportunities. Therefore we have partnered with The Prince’s Trust for our June event to highlight their activities and how the Trust is helping 11 to 30 year-olds to transform their lives.

Their results have been very successful and in just the last year have empowered over 58,000 young people to turn their lives around. Many of the young people The Prince’s Trust helps four out of every five move into jobs, education and training.

With ambitious plans for the future The Prince’s Trust aims to help one million more young people to transform their lives over the next 10 years by helping them to develop the confidence and skills to live, to learn and to earn, giving them an increasing stake in our economy and society.

Business Club Chair, Jane Reynolds will be joined by a panel from the Prince’s Trust to talk about running a national charity, the need for what the Trust does, and their ambition to help a lot more young people in the Tees Valley.

In addition the Prince’s Trust will be bringing along some of their Young Ambassadors to the event. These Young Ambassadors are youngsters that the Trust has helped, each with their own story about how their lives have been turned around.
