Young Enterprise Scotland is helped and supported by volunteers in all sorts of ways. One of the most important roles is played by a number of local voluntary management teams, known as Area Teams.
There are currently 15 of these teams across the whole of Scotland. Representing local business people and educators, the board provides a local focus for Young Enterprise. Their role is invaluable in helping promote Young Enterprise Scotland activities in as many schools as possible.
As well as providing guidance and support, the Area Teams help to engage local business people as volunteers for schools, raise funds and run local Young Enterprise events such as Christmas Markets, training and celebration events. They provide training opportunities such as Company and Team programme inductions and mid year briefings.
