Young People are at the heart of our future. That is why the Rotary Club of Taunton links with schools and youth organisation to create opportunities for young people. Help us support the young.
Once again we are launching this year's youth competition portfolio. Wether you are, or know of a budding writer, photographer, chef or someone who wants to improve their public speaking you may be interested in one of the following competitions. Despite the pandemic restrictions you or your school can still get involved. Take at a look at the information on competitions for; Young Chef, Young Writer, Youth Speaks, Young Photographer. Read about our past success and see if you can spot some faces that you know.
We also fund youth exchange and have for many years sponsored two young people to travel to the United States where they are hosted by our sister Club in Massachusetts, New England.
We support enterprise and working with teachers and our links with schools have helped us promote creativity in young people. The range and extent of their enterprising activities is outstanding.
We recognise though that what we do is just a small contribution to those in our community who dedicate their lives to helping young people whether through sport, the arts of enterprise. We know that much is owed to our local youth groups and clubs and we also recognise the commitment of families and friends as well as the statutory services.
Some years ago, alongside the Somerset Gazette we initiated the Pride of Somerset Youth Awards and alongside a range of partners and supporters continue to promote and celebrate youth achievements through this prestigious event.
