YOUTH SERVICE REPORT TO AGM MARCH 2018
RYLA successful 2017 candidates, Shannon Burke and Derran Brogan gave interesting talk about their experience. Unfortunately very poor response from both secondary schools despite hand delivered letters, emails and phonecalls. However have been put in contact with Harry Law currently completing Duke of Edinburgh’s Silver award in DAS class Queen Anne High School and Lewis Crozier promoted by Mark Todd.
EUROSCOLA successful in achieving place for Becky Campbell. Shannon Burke, our reserve was funded by Dunfermline Rotary. Feedback from girls was a fantastic experience.
Decided not to pursue these programmes this year – Youth Exchange, New Generation Service, Interact, Rotakids, young Citizen.
Decided would like to organise Young Musician & Technology Challenge. Approached Libby Seath, Carnegie and Alan Mutter, Dunfermline.
