A Shropshire youth charity has issued an invite to join its AGM and celebrate the support youth workers give to young people across the county.
SYA – All About Youth hosts its annual meeting on November 24 from 7pm and staff are looking forward to welcoming as many people as possible to hear about the amazing work the charity has done over the last year.
SYA is committed to running youth clubs, groups, and projects and supporting voluntary groups across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin, providing much-needed services and opportunities for children and young people.
Richard Parkes, chief executive of SYA, said the meeting would be held online, making it easy for people to watch and join in.
“We are proud of the work we are doing in the community and would like to share that with people at our AGM.
“We are hoping that holding the meeting online will make it easier for people to attend, and hear about what we have done over the last year and the exciting plans we have for the future.
“It is also a great opportunity for people to learn more about us and will hopefully encourage some to get involved with the charity, helping us to hit our goals of expanding the work we do and the services we provide for the benefit of children and young people.
“The meeting takes place on November 24, starting at 7pm. People can join in online and help us celebrate the ongoing success of SYA, which will also include a presentation summarising how many children our growing number of youth clubs have supported in the last year.
“These are exciting times for the charity and the services we deliver as SYA commits itself to supporting more young people and developing more support programmes across the county. Our leaders and volunteers are a vital part of that and our thanks go to them for their continued hard work.
“We will be moving into our new £1.5m HQ next year, construction on that project has just started, which will be the start of a new era for us and one that promises so much for the charity as we move forward.”
