So far a student, Jerry Ji has been accepted into the NYSF (National Youth Service Forum) being held in January. We also received a District Grant from the Rotary Foundation, which has gone to support a student at Swinburne Senior Secondary College. This will assist in their ongoing costs. Thanks to Don Heath for facilitating these projects.
I am pleased to announce that we have sourced two candidates, who are both students at Deakin University for participation in RYLA. One student is following an arts program and the other an environmental course. Hopefully they may be selected for RYLA 2022.
RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) is a district camp held annually. It is a leadership program for young people aged 18 to 25, which focuses on personal growth, leadership development and community.

Program Details: Dates: 13-19th February 2022 Venue: Camp Getaway Axedale (transport from Melbourne provided).
The cost for the candidate will be $50 with the remaining $950 being paid by Glenferrie Rotary Club.
The program aims to
  • Foster an appreciation of the diverse abilities and unique qualities of those around them.
  • Provide an opportunity for young people to come together in a supportive environment.
  • Develop a set of resources and tools to facilitate the participants' ongoing development in their communities
  • Create a greater awareness of social issues affecting young people
  • Demonstrate Rotary's commitment to young people.
  • Develop leadership skills 
  • Help participants gain a better understanding of their own strengths, passions and values
