Rotary’s leadership and personal development program in East Anglia has successfully changed many lives, giving young people the skills and tools to improve their employment prospects and develop careers.
RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) at Grafham Water Centre, Cambridge is now in its 21st year and has consistently evolved with numerous glowing testimonies from employers, graduates, sponsors and Rotarians. It is designed to change 45 individuals into a formidable team of people, using professional tutors, lecturers and instructors. This life changing experience is achieved by taking people out of their comfort zones and challenging established beliefs and boundaries. This year the Rotary Clubs of Broadlands and North Walsham sponsored Bethany Wagstaff a student at UEA who is studying for a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology. Bethany lives in Brundall and attended the course in the first week of September 2015.
