NYSF Report Caitlin Law

I would like to thank you and the Manningham Rotary Club for supporting me on this incredible opportunity, for without your help, it would not have been possible. It was an absolutely amazing experience (as detailed in my report), and one I will treasure.

Thanks once again,

Caitlin Law

Rotary Youth Driver Awareness

RYDA is designed for 16-18 year old students who are approaching that crucial time in their lives where they start to drive independently or are travelling as passengers of novice drivers. RYDA is a series of practical and powerful workshops that aim to change the way young people think about road safety. As part of an interactive one-day experience, students experience braking at different speeds, devise travel strategies and get tips from road safety experts on how to protect themselves. Catherine Smith is the Program Coordinator for Victoria and is going to tell us how we can get involved.

The Rotary Youth Exchange Program (YEP) provides secondary school students aged 15-17, sponsored by a Rotary Club, with the opportunity to live and study abroad with host families for one academic year, to learn a new language, a new way of living and a great deal about themselves. Exchange students form part of the ambassadorial team of Rotary International promoting international goodwill, peace and understanding. The students also have opportunities for personal development and making international friends and contacts that can have positive benefits for their future lives.
