Speaker Meeting 22nd July 2019

Chris Smith with Olivia and Jack

The Rotary Club of Church Wilne welcomed Jack and Olivia to Monday's speaker meeting along with Rotarian Chris Smith. The club had funded their three day youth leadership and team building weekend at White Hall Education Centre. The aim of Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) weekends is to help young people understand how important leadership and working in a team are through tackling a range of challenges including canoeing, raft building, pot holing, riding the zip wires & abseiling among other things.

The club were thrilled to hear how Jack and Olivia had enjoyed the course, making new friends, growing in confidence over the three days. A few memorable quotes from their talk: "Another hurdle overcome", "a few months ago I would not have thought I could have done that, now no problem – a woman of steel". Olivia grew so much in confidence she will now be attending "Young Explorers" with the aim of becoming a leader within their Guide Group.

Chris explained how a wide range of young people from differing backgrounds are supported. A number of Rotarians from our club will be visiting the White Hall Centre to try a few of the challenges to gain an understanding of how to support the Clubs Youth Projects Team.
