YENE agm celebrates a year of growth.

YOUNG Enterprise North East (YENE) celebrated a year of growth and rejuvenation at its annual AGM.

Members of the business and education community gathered at The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle on Wednesday night to hear the charitable organisation mark its achievements of 2006 and look ahead to a busy year in 2007.

It reported that student numbers of YENE's Company, Graduate and Primary programmes, and Team Programme have continued to rise.

However 2006 saw YENE begin a phase of developing new enterprise programmes with teachers and students, and creating some bespoke new courses. YENE is looking ahead to

2007 with plans to establish a network of 'Beacon Businesses' that are prepared to adopt a school and support their enterprise curriculum, both financially and through providing volunteers and closer links between the management of the two organisations.

If you work in the North-East business community and wish to get involved with young people through YENE contact Helen Rochester on: (0191) 495-9500.
