Youth Services Committee 2020/2021.
Insofar as progress in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic permits the committee aim to provide as many of the events as have been successfully offered in previous years and will include:
Youth Speaks: A public speaking competition for teams of pupils at the high schools of Bexhill and Battle.
Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA): An ‘outward bound’ style weekend to enable two high school pupils to develop their leadership and team building skills. The emphasis is on finding the right candidates to attend, not necessarily the highest achievers!
Mock interviews: Offered annually to pupils at St Richard’s Catholic College. Interviewers are a mix of Rotarians and members of the local business community. If you would like to assist please contact the club.
Kids Out: A day trip to Knockhatch Adventure Park for 30 primary school pupils who their teachers believe will benefit from this fun day out.
Reading Partners: Adult volunteers supporting primary school pupils with their literary skills by listening to them read to help them with both their reading and their understanding of the English language.
Busters Book Club: Financial support for pupils at Ninfield Primary school to subscribe to read and reward reading encouragement scheme.
Interact: A Rotary club for high school pupils at St Richard’s catholic College. Our club offers guidance, support and encouragement in the running and activities of the pupil’s club.
Young Writer Competition: A competition for Year 6 pupils to write a story or poem on a theme set by the club.
Scrapheap challenge: A new project which we hope will enable us to engage with those students/schools Rotary does not usually deal with. Youngsters will be invited to build a model boat from waste materials and to sail it at Egerton Park.
