Moira Hogg presents Rebecca Underwood with her RYLA Certificate of Achievement
Rebecca recent spoke at one of our meetings about her experience as the person chosen and funded by Portlethen Rotary to attend a week long RYLA adventure at Abernethy in Perthshire.
Rebecca told us how the week had been of great benefit to her especially in building her confidence as she was a team leader and led her new friends in a huge variety of outdoor tasks.
We will Rebecca well as she is about to continue her studies at University.
The committee seeks to raise the awareness of Rotarians, young men and women and those that work with young people, of the rich opportunities offered to promote community service, facilitate greater international understanding; identify and develop the leaders of tomorrow; recognise and celebrate the achievements of young people through Interact clubs, the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA), Youth Exchange and a range of cultural and sporting activities: actively facilitate the promotion of the wide range of Youth Activities to enable young people of all ages to enjoy the challenges offered and to develop strong bonds of friendship with other participants; and develop a regular and on-going dialogue with young men and women to help them to articulate and realise their hopes, dreams and expectations.
Youth are our future - there is no alternative!
