Youth Opportunities

Rotary offers many opportunities for children and young people:

  • promote community service
  • facilitate greater international understanding
  • identify and develop the leaders of tomorrow
  • recognise and celebrate the achievements of young people through RotaKids, Interact clubs, the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA), Youth Exchange and a range of cultural and sporting activities
  • actively facilitate the promotion of the wide range of Youth Activities to enable young people of all ages to enjoy the challenges offered and to develop strong bonds of friendship with other participants
  • develop a regular and on-going dialogue with young men and women to help them to articulate and realise their hopes, dreams and expectations.

Our Club offers many opportunities to the young people in our schools, colleges and universities.

Young Chef Competition

Students are challenged to plan, discuss, prepare and present a two-course meal on a limited budget.
Invariably the judges are amazed at the skill that the young people show.

Youth Speaks

A competition in which teams of three are challenged to speak in public on a subject of their choice. Professional judges assess the skill of the teams, and the winners have the chance to proceed to the National Finals.



Primary School Quiz

RYLA - Rotary Youth Leadership Award

Young people participate in a week-long programme including a variety of indoor and outdoor activities aimed at developing leadership qualities, confidence and sense of pride in achievement. They take part in hill-walking in the Cairngorms, mountain biking, raft building, climbing, gorge walking, kayaking or canoeing and various static challenges around the Abernethy site. They also hear from many interesting and inspirational speakers throughout the week.
