International Youth Exchange Program
We support a young person to experience life in another country for 1 year and offer an overseas student this same opportunity hosted by our Club. Since chartering in May 2012 we have hosted and sent students out each year.
The Club provides a Counsellor for each inbound and outbound student, and host families for 12 months of an inbound student time in Australia. The inbound student becomes a part of the Club and activities. As a host family, you have the opportunity to add an international child to your family which is both enriching and rewarding.
Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA)
The Rotary Leadership Program started in Australia over 51 years ago. Today, it is a global leadership program that continues to grow and adapt to our changing world and the needs of modern youth. The week long program acknowledges the critical role of youth in our society and is held annually in our District.
The Club has sponsored a young person each year since 2012 into the program. We feel very strongly about building leaders of the future.
Science & Engineering Challenge
Club members annually assist with the Newcastle day of the Science & Engineering Challenge. The challenge encourages high school and primary age young people’s interest in science. Who knew you could make a hover craft from a few bits and pieces?
Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN)
R.Y.P.E.N (Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment) is a Rotary program for teens with the main focus of introducing life skills and fundamental concepts that will start kids thinking about the transition that they will be making from kids to young adults, forming their own values and moral standards, and broadening the horizons culturally, socially and academically.
The Rotary Club of Greenhills-Maitland is intimately involved in the implementation of the program with members on the District organising team, and other members who assist with the all important catering for the weekend event.
