Rotary Club of West Fife - New Generations and Youth Service Committee report for Club Assembly for Rotary Year 2016-17
We hope to have a varied programme for the upcoming year, trying to build on the work that we have done in year 2015-16.
There are over a dozen Rotary-run Youth Service activities available for us to engage in with the local community and we will endeavour to do as much as we can.
In this respect, similarly to last year, I will be contacting our designated local High School, Woodmill, with whom we have now had an excellent relationship for a number of years and will offer to visit the school to go through all of the available activities to determine if there is likely to be interest in any of these.
We would however propose not to restrict contact to the High School and will attempt to contact other local youth organisations,for example local scout groups, and also the local Primary Schools as appropriate.
We again intend to support next summer's RYLA camps and depending on the interest shown by prospective candidates, we will have provision for sending a candidate to both boys and girls camps. We will try to maintain contact with our RYLA students and encourage them to support Club Community projects where possible.
We will also continue to support the Primary School Quiz, hoping to at least maintain or improve upon this years level of entries from local schools.
There has been little interest in the formation of an Interact Club at Woodmill, as it is seen to be similar in content to current school activities but we intend to investigate the possibility of co-sponsoring an Interact Club with one of the other local Rotary clubs. Out of the other available activities, we are keen to support Young Citizen awards, a Euroscola candidate, and the Young Writer and Photographer competitions. This content of our programme may of course change once we speak to the local Schools and other organisations, and we will inquire as to whether there might be interest in the Young Chef and Young Musician competitions.
We look forward to a hopefully busy year and will work within our allocated overall budget of £2500 to cover our activities for the year, including an allowance for as yet undetermined requests for assistance which may crop up from the local community, as has been the case this year.
We will continue to liaise with the Communications Committee to maximise public awareness of the works being carried out, with particular reference where possible to social media.
Many thanks to Helen Fowler for assistance in the preparation of this report for the new Rotary Year.
