‘Sign up’ plea for Rotary Youth Leadership Award
PUBLISHED: 12:30 18 January 2017
The hunt is on to recruit two new local youths to sign up for the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) course.
Last year, Exmouth Community College students Julian Green and Josh Harding successfully completed a week of tough challenges to achieve the award, taking part in a week of tough physical tests on Dartmoor, plus motivational talks, competitions and team-building exercises. The town’s Rotary clubs, Exmouth Raleigh and Exmouth and District, which funded the boys’ course, are now keen to recruit two candidates for the 2017 RYLA event.
Anyone aged between 16 and 18 on September 1, 2017, who wants to explore and develop leadership skills, who is prepared for a range of tough physical challenges and is looking for a personal challenge, is invited to get in touch.
Jan Earner, Exmouth Raleigh Rotary Club’s president, said: “Rotary believes in investing in the future of our young people and the benefits of this type of course to the individual are very evident.”
