Rotary Club of Grays Thurrock supports the youth of Thurrock

On Sunday 26th April, a group of youngsters from Thurrock took part in the RYLA (Rotary Young Leaders Award) which was run at the Danbury Youth Centre


The group from Treetops School, The Convent and the Thurrock Sea Cadets t/s Dragon had to complete challenges set by the leaders on site. The goal of the weekend was to encourage the development of teamwork and leadership skills in young people who have the potential to be future community, professional and business leaders. This is achieved by making use of outward bound activities to create various environments for them to operate in. It was hoped that the challenges set would help to build team spirit to enable them to work effectively, encourage the recognition and use of skills in others, discover things about themselves, build confidence in themselves to mention a few. Although the weather was rather cold and wet everyone joined in and had a good time. Rotarian Nicholas Wilkinson said ‘the laughter and smiles on the faces on the youngsters indicated everyone was having a good time. Our club, The Rotary Club of Grays Thurrock was pleased to be involved with the project and provide financial support so that the event could be run free of charge for the participants’.
