Youth Speaks annual event

Tue, Feb 28th 2017 at 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Annual public speaking competition run in February with the The Rotary Club of Pickering.

This Public Speaking competition is run in conjunction with the The Rotary Club of Pickering  who do the main organisation whilst the Cavaliers provide stewarding and sometimes judging on the day.  Traditionally the event takes place in Pickering at Lady Lumley’s School. 

In the past we have often provided an opportunity for prospective teams from the 6th form college to have a dry run at one of our Club meetings, this helps to mitigate the effects of nerves and helps the whole Club become a part of the event.

'What We Do' Main Pages:

Developing young people

Overcoming challenges of public speaking or technology tournaments, or a Rotary Youth Leadership Awards course helps young people develop tools for success such as self-confidence, planning & team building skills.

Fun, fellowship & social happenings

Our convivial weekly meetings form a platform for our eclectic speakers. We learn of many varied interests. ‘Special events’ such as Burns night, Christmas celebrations and visits to places of refreshment add to the opportunities for fellowship and fun.

Rotary around the world

Worldwide Rotary supports dozens of projects - the most long lasting & ambitious is the project to eradicate polio – now endemic in just two countries. We also have projects in Ghana & India supporting schools & delivering clean water.

Fundraising ...
