Shane Jefferson, 42 from Doncaster has been involved with the scheme in South Yorkshire for over eleven years and has successfully merged his commitments to the scheme with his day job as a production manager at Pegler Yorkshire's Doncaster site.
During his involvement with the scheme he has worked with hundreds of young people and now provides guidance to other business advisors in the region.
Commenting on his award Mr Jefferson said: "I was delighted to receive the Gold award for Outstanding Volunteer Contribution and thoroughly enjoy the work that I do with schools across the county.
"The scheme can form a worthwhile part of the education programme and is perfectly suited to giving its participants an appreciation of business and the world of work."
Phill Jackson, marketing & business development director at Pegler Yorkshire, said: "Shane is an ambassador for Pegler Yorkshire and continues to provide inspiration and education to Young Enterpriser's in South Yorkshire. His vision and positivity will encourage them to pursue careers in industry, manufacturing and business and his award is well deserved."
