Wanted: Young person seeking to develop their self-confidence and Leadership Skills.

Each summer all across the UK, Rotary Clubs sponsor individual teenagers – boys and girls – to attend an adventure week, the Rotary Youth Leadership Award – RYLA.  This year Ludlow Rotary Club’s candidate was Jared Forte and he recently gave a fascinating talk to the Club about his experiences on the five day residential course.

He admitted to feeling a little homesick on the first morning after being soaked to the skin in the initial ice breaking exercises, and Jared’s team failed their first teamwork task, but as the week progressed, and the team members grew to know each other’s strengths and to work together, the team did really well and became tightly knit and successful.  A surprising number of the challenges seemed to involve mud and water, but there were great motivational speakers and Jared made new friends.


Jared (second from left) said “The course helped me understand the need for teamwork and I now feel more confident working on group projects with fellow students at Ludlow College, where I am currently studying”.

Ludlow Rotary Club are now looking for a candidate for next year’s course.  You should be a full-time student and aged 16 or 17 on 12 August 2018.  Course fees of £475 will be met by Ludlow Rotary Club, as will travel costs, and you should be available to attend the 5 day course from 12th to 17th August 2018.

This is a unique opportunity to have some fun, make some new friends and develop new skills and grow your self-confidence.  It will also look good on your CV!  For more information and an application form visit the RYLA web page or contact
