Supporting the Youth in our Community.
Our Rotary Club actively supports the youth
of our community with the aim of developing their skills through a number of
events and initiatives.
Every year we sponsor students
to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) which is a residential
course with students both from this country and internationally. It is a
tremendous experience for them to meet and work with others and use their
initiative on projects and life skills.
For many years we have organised
the local heats of the Rotary Young Chef competition where students from our
senior schools cook a 2 course meal for professional judges. The standard is
always extremely high and the winner goes on, with our support, to represent
our area in the District and hopefully National Finals.
Similarly we also support
entries into The Rotary Young Photographers competition.
We are aiming to support local
primary schools with grants to enable the purchase of books and other items
otherwise unavailable to them.
For the past few years we have
supported the students of Imberhorne School in the Young Enterprise competition
where the students organise their own trading company and products to sell.
A number of our members also
give their time to provide mentoring to young people to help with career
We also work closely with the
local Scout Groups and Playgroups providing donations and support.
We respond as and when asked to requests
from individual young people.
We are extremely active in the support of
the youth in our community as they are the future. Why not come and find out more?
