BODMIN ROTARY CLUB  - JUNIOR RYLA 2018

A bit about:  -  ROTARY YOUTH LEADERSHIP AWARDS (RYLA)  is a weeks residential course, based at the Dartmoor Adventure Centre at Okehampton, Devon and covers teamwork, leadership, communication and problem solving. It is organised for Rotary by The Youth Hostels Association and is run by fully trained, accredited, and DBS checked, instructors.  The courses are designed for 16 - 18 years (Junior) and 18 - 28 (Seniors)

Participants have great fun coupled with a real sense of achievement and increased awareness of their personal strengths. The week is all about teamwork and problem solving led by professional people who are experienced in motivating young people. There will be opportunities for participants to demonstrate some leadership skills, but in the main, each activity will be closely guided by a trained instructor.

<>
This years RYLA candidate:  Jessica Dorson (16 years of age) has recently returned from her one week course at the Dartmoor Youth Adventure Centre at Okehampton. 
On Wednesday last, Jessica gave a very interesting and confident talk about all the activities she took part in.   One very powerful message that Jessica impressed on us was the value of the course to her and everyone who attended.  She says, in just one week, she feels a great difference in her confidence,  in mixing with and talking to people, team work etc.   It is one of the best things she has done and says many more young people should go on it if they can.

Jessica is also an England Junior Boxing Champion.

L to R :  Rtn. Peter Ford (Chmn. Youth Activities),  Jessica Dorson,  Rtn. Peter Old ( Vice President)
