Youth Projects

Rotary Racer

One of many local school projects, Rotary Racer is a Greenpower team. What started in 2005 as an initiative within Chipping Sodbury School to get 'Lads and Dads' working together now involves the whole family working to build electric powered cars to race


Rotary Racer is a car, built by the Greenpower  club at Chipping Sodbury School, sponsored by Rotary. This  now involves whole families working to build electric powered cars to race.

Projects undertaken:-

RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award)

 This year we are sponsoring 2 students from Chipping Sodbury on a week- long residential course to build personal and  leadership skills

Kids Out

We arranged for 19 children from Culverhill School to join about 400 other youngsters with special needs from District 1100, to go to Cattle Country Park for Kids Out.  

The Young Innovator Competition

The Young Innovator Competition is held annually at the Town Hall in June or July. It  is for 15 to 17 year olds from  Brimsham Green, Chipping Sodbury and Yate International Academy.  Each year we have about 60 students entering, and receive very positive feedback.  

Green Power

We continued to support the Green Power project at Chipping Sodbury School and, in particular, the Rotary Racer car.

Young Chef

We support a ‘Young Chef’ competition at both Chipping Sodbury and Brimsham Green Schools.

Youth Speaks

A significant project is Youth Speaks, involving Chipping Sodbury and Brimsham Green Schools, both collaborating enthusiastically. Working with teachers from both schools. we have developed a programme that introduces young people to debating, a skill that is put to the test in a public competition.
