Best Youth Project in the North East [North East Young People’s Awards event, in January 2018].
Silx has been working with young people for over 20 years. But, history alone doesn’t make us what we are today. It’s what we do day after day, week after week, that counts.
Today, Silx links with 900 young people. Annually, our Employability Service alone helps 200 young people build confidence, develop skills, and move into training and employment.
We are a resourceful and successful fund raiser making us financially secure in a tough world. Silx employs a professional and dedicated team of workers who constantly support and challenge the young people who attend our evening drop-in sessions, employability afternoons, and detached work sessions on the streets of Blyth.
Now we are seeking additional trustees to help us achieve future goals. Could you attend 10 evening meetings a year? Can you keep in touch with other trustees and our senior workers? Are you able to contribute to our successes and help solve our problems?
If you can, give us a call on 07432862722 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you prefer, indicate your interest by writing to Jerry Hayes, Chair of Trustees, Silx Teen Bar, 5 Church Street, Blyth, Northumberland NE24 1BG – don’t forget to include your name and contact details.
