Our club programme for helping young people to develop their skills and talents is often organised in conjunction with District or R.I.B.I. activities. These activities are aimed at giving young people in local schools and youth organisations better access to a wide range of youth activities including leadership skills, sports, music,literature, and hobbies events.

As a club Northampton West is committed to encouraging the young and Rotary in the wider world has defined a whole array of projects to capture the imagination.
We have successfully produced a winning Youth Speaks team from the Girls High School, We have produced a champion Young Chef also from the Girls High School. Our Young Photographer competition produced an extremely high standard of entries..
