YOUTH ACTIVITIES & OPPORTUNITIES
The Club is very supportive of young people, from primary school to teenage, with a wide range of activities.thumbnail view
A very varied approach is the key to our activities in this area. For the younger ones we give out around 600 Dictionaries for Life each year to children at the local primary schools. During term time several of our members and some of their partners do reading assistance at the schools.
The Rotary Youth Speaks competition is very much an active part of our youth activities. This year Oathall Community College were very successful with their Intermediate Team winning the District Final with Molly Hord the "Best Speaker" and the Senior Team also doing very well. In recent years teams from both Oathall Community College and Great Walstead School have won the national finals.
Also each year we sponsor a young person to take part in the week-long Rotary Youth Leadership Course, which is a life-changing experience for them. We are also linked to, and support the local Scout Group.
