Youth Service

Supporting the Youth of St Albans through The Young Chef Competion, the Technology Tournament, and Youth Talk a schools debating competition

St Albans Verulamium Rotarians believe that young people should be encouraged to grow and develop - in order that they are able to reach their full potential and thus become responsible and caring members of our community. They are the new generation.

We involve ourselves in a number of projects such as

Rotary Young Chef 

Thomas Jobson  cooks up a treat.

Organised by the Rotary Club of St Albans Verulamium this is the local heat of a Rotary National Competition held at Oaklands College.



Rotary Technology Tournament

The Rotary Clubs of St Albans and Harpenden sponsor and organise the Schools Technology Tournament held at Marlborough Science Academy. A fun event for all taking part. Could you design and build something from scratch with no prior knowledge. St Albans school kids can and do very successfully.

 Around 100 students from 10 schools take part.  The challenge changes each year.  


Rotary Youth Leadership Awards

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), Rotary's training program for young leaders, emphasises leadership, citizenship, and personal growth. Every June we sponsor up to three young people to attend a youth leadership weekend at RAF Henlow and follow up their experiences.

Rotary Youth Exchange

We sponsor International youth exchanges between countries in the desire to break down cultural stereotypes and give young people an alternative role model and exposure to our key ethic "Service above self".
