YOUTH  AND  VOCATIONAL  ACTIVITIES

Rotary organise vocational activities mainly aimed at young people aged from 11 onwards. Many activities are in the form of competitions which appeal to both artistic and practical scientific talents in younger people.  Other initiatives encourage travel abroad on assignments including youth exchange placements, as well as giving some relief to those who are less fortunate.

Rotary Club of Arbury has a relatively modest core of activities.  However we hope to build on these either by enlargement of those already undertaken, or by exploring other fields of involvement.

Currently we are active in the following :-

YOUNG CARERS

Every year we sponsor a group of young carers from Nuneaton to have a few days away from the home environment.  Each August, they are sent to an Adventure Camp; currently Blackwell Adventure, Worcs. Selection of those participating, and their transport is arranged through Warwickshire Young Carers.

DAVID PHILLIPS AWARD

This prestigious award , named in memory of one of our past presidents, is made annually to the most outstanding engineering student at North Warwickshire & Hinckley College.  Recent winners have gone on to study at university or take up apprenticeships with international companies such as Mercedes.

DEBATING COMPETITION

This competition is organised by Higham Lane School with assistance from Rotary Club of Arbury.  We provide officials to run and judge the debates which cover a wide range of topics, with the participants not knowing if they are for or against the motion until the debate starts.  One possible development from this is to award a prize for the best debater, and if agreeable, and enter them in the Youth Speaks competition in the following year.

YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHER

Young Photographer  Last year, for the first time, we ran Young Photographer for students at King Edward VI Form College, Nuneaton, and are pleased to accept entries from them again this year.  As with last year, the winner will be submitted as our club entry at District level.  We hope to encourage other schools and colleges across all age groups to take part in future.
