Staff and students at the Aylesbury Youth Motor Project (AYMP) welcomed Buckinghamshire County Council Chairman Val Letheren during a visit where she discovered more about the organisation which aims to boost the confidence and career opportunities of lesser advantaged young people.
Accompanied by High Sheriff Milly Soames, they were introduced to the young people benefitting from the project which offers training in vehicle repairs and maintenance and given a guided tour of the facility. The organisation, based in Edison Road, has been running for more than 10 years and has helped hundreds of young people to develop skills and gain qualifications and confidence to achieve.
Val said: “What an amazing place. It’s fantastic that so many young people from disadvantaged backgrounds have been given this opportunity to improve their lives, gaining confidence and skills for the future. Well done to them and the team who help run such a valuable community project.”
