The Rotary organisation is about building a better society both locally and internationally, The Rotary Club of Abingdon Vesper actively promotes that principle.
One way that it can help young adults is to promote The Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA), which is Rotary’s way of giving young adults at the start of their careers the opportunity to develop qualities of leadership, team working, initiative, communication and problem solving. RYLA is a week long course that includes activities such as abseiling, navigation, canoeing, sailing, high ropes etc.
Young adults aged between 18 and 25, with leadership potential, from all backgrounds and experience are welcome to apply. The course is designed to develop the latent talents in candidates and to give them the confidence to contribute and become future leaders. Applications are particularly welcome from those who may not get the opportunity to attend a course such as this.
The course takes place at a specially adapted centre in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.
There is no cost to candidates as they will be met by the Rotary Club of Abingdon Vesper.
