THE JON EGGING TRUST

From working with 10 young people on our first programme in Lincolnshire in 2012, JET has now supported more than 30,000 young lives through our unique motivational, inspirational and skills-building programmes, which we deliver in partnership with the Royal Air Force and our corporate partners to schools and youth organisations across the UK.

  • Jon Egging Trust CEO and founder, Dr Emma Egging, is a member of the April Fools Club.
  • AFC member Air Vice-Marshal Harv Smyth, is a Patron of the Jon Egging Trust
  • Members of the AFC have participated every year in JETRide, JET’s mass-participation cycling sportive in Lincolnshire.
  • The Royal Air Force is a key strategic partner. The Jon Egging Trust’s Blue Skies programmes and Inspirational Outreach days are supported by 17 RAF stations/partners across the UK, including RAF Valley, RAF Marham, RAF Scampton, RAF Coningsby, the Red Arrows and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
  • JET currently also works with 23 corporate partners across the UK who help to fund and deliver our programmes.
  • The Jon Egging Trust offers long-term support to vulnerable young people who are struggling to engage at school and have lost focus, confidence and self-belief and are at risk of becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training).
  • Our Blue Skies programmes raise aspiration, self-belief and resilience, and empower young people to challenge themselves and re-engage with education to make informed career choices.
  • JET is committed to supporting young people to participate more fully in their communities and to have access to training and employment which enhances their future prospects.
