ROTARY STRIVES TO HELP YOUNG PEOPLE TO BECOME PEOPLE OF INTEGRITY
Give me a child before he is seven and I'll give you the man.
This is a Jesuit maxim. Its meaning is clear - that children with good role models grow up as people of integrity.
We strive to help our young people to grow up as people of integrity.
We have a number of youth programmes to celebrate and support our young people.
Liz Higgins has the special responsibility to reach out to young people. She says: 'We seek to help Young People in our locality to become good Citizens, promote their creativity, foster an interest in Rotary and specially address the needs of our more marginalised youngsters. We will take part in the Kids Out day, engage with the local Holly Bank Centre for the severely physically disabled young people and support Mirfield Matrix, helping youngster at risk of Social Exclusion. We will enter young people for various national activities and promote good citizenship through the young Citizen award scheme, support two candidates to attend leadership training courses, and a candidate for Rotary Youth Sail.'
