Youth Activities

A range of activities organised by the Rotary Club for the benefit of young people

  • Young Citizen Awards
  • Young Musician
  • Youth Speaks
  • Young Photographer

The Club also annually funds and supports two or more young people on a week's course in Leadership Training as part of RYLA (Rotary Young Leadership Awards).
