New trustees for Jon Egging Trust as charity celebrates decade of helping young people

Charity Jon Egging Trust (JET) has appointed three new members to its Board of Trustees as it embarks on its tenth year of operations and seeks to help more young people than ever before.

With the appointment of David Montenegro (pictured), Commanding Officer of the Red Arrows, Samantha Porteous, a former CEO, and the appointment of a new Chair of Trustees, Richard Peberdy, a partner at KPMG, the charity is looking ahead to a year that will see the launch of its new digital learning resource ‘JET Inspired.’

The resource includes a series of films and educational tools that have been developed in partnership with the Red Arrows and licenced by the Ministry of Defence to help young people to re-engage with education and learn key emotional skills that will enable them to feel positive.

“We are delighted to welcome three new Trustees as we embark on our next decade of work. Covid-19 has touched the lives of every young person in the UK and their learning and mental health has been affected, in some cases severely,” said charity CEO Dr Emma Egging.

“There has never been a more urgent need for Jon Egging Trust’s unique learning programmes which help to rebuild confidence, motivation and self-belief in youngsters who are at risk of dropping out of education.

“The experience and expertise of our new Trustees will ensure that we are able to achieve our goal of reaching out to support as many young people across the UK as possible, both during this crisis and into the future.”
