Look­ing for young lead­ers to tackle Snow­do­nia

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Ro­tary Club of Uxbridge are look­ing for young peo­ple to take part in a chal­leng­ing and re­ward­ing course in Snow­do­nia.

The Ro­tary Youth Lead­er­ship Award (RYLA) is open to peo­ple aged 18-25 and is fully spon­sored by the Ro­tary Club. It in­cludes a day of team build­ing, fol­lowed by two days of learn­ing new skills such as ori­en­teer­ing, rock climb­ing, ab­seil­ing, ca­noe­ing and slate mine ex­plo­ration, and fin­ishes with 30 hour group chal­lenge.

Ro­tary Club Pres­i­dent, Mike Crane, said: “For some this may sound a daunt­ing prospect, but for those with lead­er­ship po­ten­tial in their blood this is a great op­por­tu­nity.

“The Club has spon­sored at least one young per­son to at­tend the course each year, but be­lieve it or not we some­times strug­gle to find a suit­able can­di­date.”

The course will run from 25th July – 1st Au­gust. No pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence is re­quired and spe­cial­ist equip­ment is sup­plied. To ap­ply for the award, send a CV and a para­graph on why you’d like to go to Ro­tar­ian Simon Nash: nash50@ bt­in­ter­net.com by 30th April 2015.
