“SYST is a fantastic organisation that gives young people helpful advice and support. Everyone is kind and helpful. I would recommend any one to get involved with them.”
“Fantastic organisation aimed at aiding todays youth by giving helpful advice and support. Brilliant idea and a great way to gain invaluable experience that will only benefit people in business in the future. Definitely an organisation I would recommend to get involved with.”
“The times I have turned to SYST I was offered encouragement, advice, and where you couldn’t help me, you often knew people who could, and occasionally you’d offer me connections I didn’t need but thought I might benefit from.”
