The Rotary Club of Noble Park-Dingley
has for many years been an active supporter of the many Rotary Youth, Community and International programs including:
Rotary Youth Leadership Award
(RYLA) is a week-long residential program for young people aged 18 to 25, which focuses on personal growth, leadership development and community.
- Are you a young person wanting one of the best experiences of your life?
- Are you aged between 18-25?
- Do you live, work, study or volunteer within our District 9810 (southern Melbourne)?
- Do you have an open mind? Ready to challenge yourself?
If you are, you may want to take on the RYLA challenge and contact us!
Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment
(RYPEN) is a Youth Leadership conference for young people who are between 15 and 17 and are year 9, 10 or 11 students. The conference is a weekend-long camp designed at developing young people’s potential through a mixture of lecture-style sessions and adventure- based learning.
National Youth Science Forum
(NYSF) runs annual residential programs to encourage young people in their passion for science. It gives year 12 students a broader understanding of the diverse study and career options available in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and encourages them to continue their studies in these fields.
Interact is a service club for youth ages 12 to 18 who want to connect with other young people and have fun while serving their communities and learning about the world. Clubs are sponsored by local Rotary clubs and meet at least twice a month. Interact clubs organise two service projects a year; one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding. Members of sponsor Rotary clubs mentor Interactors as they carry out the projects and develop leadership skills.
Early Act is an opportunity for young children aged 5 – 13 to participate in Rotary initiatives that have impact local, national, or international recipients.
Our students are guided by local Rotary club members who help children run Early Act meetings at school and support children to identify projects for which they would like to raise funds.
Early Act promotes and fosters a sense of community volunteerism amongst our students. The mission and operation of EarlyAct are closely linked to the ideals of Rotary and provides the foundation and natural succession into Interact. EarlyAct also engages students in character-building activities and prepares them for leadership roles.
