    My oldest who is now 20 years old, was very shy as a young child. I think the shyness followed him into his teen years as well. Around the age of about 18 he stopped being shy and came out of his shell so to speak.
    However, he has traveled South America alone at the age of 19. He always surprises me with his ability to open up when he is fully ready.
    I would encourage you to accept him as he is. Get to know his strengths and run with them.
    Here is a great article on shy children, I'm sure you will find some useful information here.
