Opportunities for Young People
Many young people are participants in Rotary’s youth and young adult programmes, such as, RotaKids, Interact, Rotaract, and Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
Rotary clubs also promote competitions, such as Young Writer and Young Photographer at local, area and then onto national levels.
Rotary Elgin will continue to sponsor candidates to attend RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award), will hold their annual Primary School Quiz and hope to develop further our own local Elgin Rotary Leadership Initiative (ERLI) to include additional schools to provide young people with this valuable training opportunity.
Rotary Elgin will continue to work with our sponsor club Rotaract Moray.
Rotaract is an opportunity to be part of a fun, dynamic and unique International organisation for people aged 18-30, offering a wide range of activities that will enable you to try something new, whilst having a great time and meeting others.
Rotaract meetings on the first and third Monday of every month at 7:30pm, the venue can change, however please contact Rotaract directly by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit morayrotaract.org for more information. Follow them on facebook Rotaract Moray.
Rotary Elgin and in conjunction with Elgin Youth Cafe will be starting an Interact Club at The Warehouse.
Interact is an organisation which offers young people aged 12-18 great opportunities to broaden their horizons, make friends and help others.

What is RYLA about?
The object of RYLA is to develop leadership qualities and team working: to give a sense of pride in achievement; to stimulate mind and body, and in doing so to emphasise the importance of sportsmanship, fitness, character and personal relationships as part of quality living.
