Since 2015 we have been recognising and rewarding outstanding performance by young people and their employers, working in the Kingsbridge and Salcombe areas.
In 2020 the Youth and Business Awards, fondly known of as the YABAs, extends its catchment to incorporate Modbury area.
Representing our 170+ membership in the area, we align shared strategic business interests in the Youth & Business Awards, including enrichment of the area’s resident community and motivating a flourishing employment market.
For our young people aged 16 – 25 who are nominated or succeed in winning an award, the YABAs recognises and rewards the performance which has enabled them to achieve in a workplace in the area. For our businesses employing our young people, the YABAs recognise and reward their success as the leaders, motivators and managers who nurture our young people to success.
Following four successful awards ceremonies we are thrilled to confirm, the 2019 event will be held at Thurlestone Golf Club on the 19th March 2020.
The Awards are open to all young people aged 16 – 25 in any form of employment, also to the businesses who employ our young people, specifically in workplaces in the Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Modbury areas of South Devon.
