Rotary Youth Leadership Development Competition

Youth Leadership Development Competition This competition is one of our longest running youth projects and it rewards young people with clear leadership potential based on their extra-curricular activities. The format of the competition has been reviewed on many  occasions and we will now revert to the pre-covid programme for the coming school year. This exciting six day team building trip begins in Belfast where we have a visit to The Titanic Centre, a tour of Stormont and meet with local politicians and business leaders.  We then travel to Dublin where we are invited to an information seminar and lunch hosted by the Staff of the European Parliament offices. This is followed by a tour of Dail Eireann and further meetings with Politicians. We then fly to Strasbourg and prepare for the  highlight of the trip which is a full day of debating a variety of motions at Euroscola at the European Parliament in Strasbourg along with about five hundred other students from all over Europe. On the last day we have some time out for a sightseeing trip around Strasbourg and then fly back to Dublin.

NB: ALL entrants must be over sixteen on date of departure (to be confirmed) and under eighteen years of age on 31st March 2022.

The Competition is open to holders of Passports from a European Union Country who are living on the island of Ireland.  Passports need to be in date (valid) up to six months from date of trip.
