EAST GRINSTEAD MERIDIAN ROTARY

YOUTH OPPORTUNITIES
Team Leader: Lucia Frazao


Over the years Meridian Rotary has been involved with our local schools, both Junior and Secondaryin a range of projects. Now, after these challenging times of disease and restrictions, we are very keen to rekindle our links with the Junior and Secondary schools in the East Grinstead area.

We would like to provide all children and young people with several youth opportunities and engaging hands-on projects, namely Young Chef, RYLA course, Youth Speaks: a Debate, Help Scheme, Design a Plate and Meridian Star Award.

These projects will provide all participants with unique opportunities to express themselves through different activities as well as develop a wide range of critical skills such as collaboration, problem solving, critical thinking, self-esteem, confidence, and creativity. By getting involved in such innovative and engaging projects, children and young people will be able to use imagination and experiment with new ways of facing and solving problems. Ultimately, they will be able to become much more proactive as authors and creators of their own educational path and personal growth.

We detail the various projects below and we would very much welcome your school’s involvement.

YOUTH OPPORTUNITIES DURING 2021 - 2022

Design A Plate

Design a plate will allow children to develop their creative skills and share their talents by expressing their own interpretation of a relevant theme. Children design a piece of artwork. Then they will transfer this to their plate and decorate it.

We hope you find these of interest. We will be pleased if you would let us know which projects you would like to embrace.
