The Board of Trustees is composed of members of JT’s immediate family along with business and community leaders who have thrown their support behind this very worthwhile cause.

The Trustees are all volunteers.  The JTYAF has no paid staff and no premises so virtually all of the funds raised are directly invested in young people.

In addition to the Board of Trustees, the charity is delighted to welcome co-opted members who will act as regional ambassadors for the UK or their respective industry or service.

The support of these volunteers has made it possible for the JTYAF to be established and our thanks are extended to them and the organisations that have provided their assistance so generously.
