Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment

This programme is delivered by the combined Rotary Clubs of Rotorua and aims for a large group of Year 10 boys and girls from the Rotorua and Reporoa High Schools to attend. Aged between 14 – 16 years, the programme is perfect for those students who have shown attributes of decency, courage, and persistence and leadership qualities.

The principal aim is to communicate to young people a series of ideas, problems and social experiences which will assist them in breaking through barriers, forming their own values and moral standards and to broaden their horizons culturally, socially and academically.

RYPEN is designed for the average student showing leadership qualities and potential to excel, not necessarily those who already are great leaders and excelling in their chosen areas.

If the student does not know anyone at the start of the programme, they leave with 50 new friends when it finishes on Sunday. The Year 10 Deans of each school assist in selecting the best students for the programme.

Contact our Youth Programme Director or your Year 10 Dean for more information.
