In brief: Why do you need to?

Once you accept his shyness as a valid choice he made because something happened earlier in his life and he said to himself "i'm not sticking my neck out again to be embarrassed or whatever" then you can begin to provide opportunities for him to succeed and gain more confidence in himself.
Find out what he likes to do, encourage that. Martial arts (tang soo do) can help., .
