This Committee works to support the local community in projects to develop young people
The Rotary Club of Yeovil ofter run competitions for the young people in our area such as 'Young Chef, Young Photographer' and 'Young Musician'. See the local press or elsewhere on this website for information. In addition, local Schools and Colleges can put forward students for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA). The RYLA training programme is for leaders and potential leaders between the ages of 14 and 18. Interviews take place in November of each year to select up to 2 candidates. The Rotary Club of Yeovil will pay £500 to the candidate(s) selected to attend a course - the successful candidate(s) will have to raise a further £100 to show their committment. The RYLA scheme has enjoyed great success over the years and feedback from those attending the scheme is extremely positive with claims that it is 'life changing'.
