“I am incredibly proud to sit as a board trustee for a Youth Zone which makes a real positive difference to so many young people across Manchester. I am continually amazed by the potential the youth zone can help unlock in its members and always come away from meetings feeling revitalised and humbled to be able to help support and shape young peoples futures”
Simeon is a Portfolio Director with Cazenove Capital and has been involved with Manchester Youth Zone for the past five years. He took up the role of Trustee last year.
“I grew up in an area where as a teenager there was nothing to do. I was lucky enough to be invited to a small youth club that supported me, encouraged me, and raised my aspirations. Manchester Youth Zone does the same thing but for thousands of kids and on a huge scale. It’s a privilege to be involved in this work and to see the tangible results and positive impact it is having on young people.”

As a trustee for MYZ, she wants to combine all her experience of community development, income growth, commissioning and delivery, events and investment to raise the profile of both MYZ and the young people that it serves.
