Rotary Club of High Wycombe
Home | Youth Service
'Youth Service' descended from the one-time 'Vocational' and 'Rotaract and Youth' (RAYC) committees.
Its name speaks for itself
Scope of the Committee
As its name implies, the Youth Service committee concerns itself with young people, including our local Rotaract Club. It embraces a variety of projects and initiatives, including those described below.
Founded by Rotarian Paul Hunter, Endeavour Awards are in recognition of determined effort against the odds.
Five educational establishments in Wycombe have a standing invitation to nominate a boy or girl who has achieved something not solely by innate ability but by persistence in the face of difficulties that would have deterred more ordinary people.
So the choice is not made by the Rotary Club but by the school itself. And without exception the winner has deserved it ten times over!
Paul Hunter no longer lives in High Wycombe, but we are proud to keep his idea going. Every Endeavour Award is different, but they share one characteristic - they renew our faith in the young.

Reading in Schools
This successful initiative is for volunteers, not solely Rotarians from the Committee, to read with young pupils. Find out more about the scheme by clicking here.
is a scheme that sends young people on a week's 'adventure' experience that has been shown to build the leadership, communication and decision-making skills of young people to help them apply these skills in their careers. One or two people are sponsored annually.
Technology Tournament (TT)
is an annual challenge for School teams to design and build a machine to achieve a set task (with three degrees of difficulty) using everyday materials and lots of ingenuity. Imagination and innovation are more important than handicraft skills, and judges give points for a methodical approach as well as practical results. Girls often beat the boys.
