The Shropshire Youth Support Trust (SYST) recently attended The Apprentice Show, which took place at the International Centre in Telford. This was a fantastic opportunity for the charity to engage with young people and inform them about the work that they do.

At the event, SYST had the chance to speak to lots of young people about how they can help them at the start of their careers. Whether it is setting up a business or improving their wellbeing, SYST is committed to supporting young people in the Shropshire area.

One of the main areas of focus for SYST at the event was their Youth Board. The Youth Board is a group of young people who work with SYST to help shape the direction of the charity and ensure that the needs of young people are being met. The Youth Board is made up of young people aged between 16-30, who are passionate about making a difference in their local community.

Becoming involved in the Youth Board is a great opportunity for young people to develop their skills and gain experience in areas such as leadership, teamwork and project management. It also provides a platform for young people to have their voices heard and make a real difference in their local community.

SYST’s Youth Board is a vital part of the charity, and they are always looking for new members to join. If you are aged between 16-30 and are interested in becoming involved in the Youth Board, you can find more information on the SYST website at

Overall, attending The Apprentice Show was a great opportunity for SYST to engage with young people and spread the word about the fantastic work that they do. Their commitment to supporting young people in the Shropshire area is truly inspiring, and their Youth Board is a testament to their dedication to empowering young people and giving them a voice.
