Youth Services 2014 - 2015



Chairman: Tony Boddy

We  will continue with the projects we have successfully been involved with over a number of years:

RYLA(Rotary Young Leaders Award : we have seen at first hand the benefits to candidates we have supported on this scheme. We have sponsored only one candidate each year for many years past but this coming July/August we will be sending two. As a result of Settle having problems with their candidate. We, ie. Our committee, are considering having a dedicated fund raising event in the coming Rotary year to cover the cost of a second candidate in 2015.

Kids Out: our support to Ripon and Harrogate Young Carers has been greatly appreciated. The enjoyment on the day at Lightwater Valley last week and feedback from the young people has always reinforced our wish to continue to be involved.

Schools Technology Tournament: by organizing teams from our two secondary schools and providing a judge and stewards we have indicated our interest and commitment to the event.

 Youth Projects we will be looking at again with a view to expanding this year include;

Young Musician After our involvement in this successful event last year, we will be giving active support again.

The Club offered a Rotary Prize, of a 25 book token to a pupil from each of the Grammar School and the Outwood Academy as a Service above Self award. This will be an ongoing award.

We have during the year helped pupils at Ripon Grammar School with interview techniques and with their Careers Evening. I believe this year we have been successful in fostering closer links with the two Secondary Schools in Ripon and developing closer links with the Primary Schools through the Literacy Awards, but there is further work to be done. The involvement of the schools in our litter picking will be explored further.

In the Rotary GB&I Youth Service Newsletter they list the following projects that might be of interest to clubs ie,  Young Chef, Youth Speaks, Young Musician, Young Photographer, Young Writer, Young Citizen, RTYLA, Interact, Rota Kids.

There is only so much we can take on during the year but we are open to new ideas.
