Support for RYLA 2021     

The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program offers young men and women between the ages of 18 and 25 years an opportunity to attend a residential seminar designed to develop their leadership skills. RC Karrinyup sponsored three worthy participants to the 2021 RYLA program held recently - Phoebe Earnshaw, Abdiwahab Hillow and Audrey Repsevicius. The young people will present an account of their experience to members at a club meeting early in March.


Stan Perron Award to Warwick SHS Student     

Past District Governor Fred Marsh (RC Scarborough) made a belated presentation to Abdiwahab Hillow from our link school Warwick SHS, winner of an inaugural Stan Perron Award. Abdiwahab was nominated by his school as a student, who met all the criteria. The award seeks students, who excel both academically and at sport, make a contribution to the school community service and who emulate the elements of Rotary’s Four Way Test in their relationship with their teachers and fellow students. The award provides a medal and a scholarship of $500 towards further education.


GLOW Guides     

It was our privilege to sponsor Bettie, one of the Aranmore Catholic College Glow Guides, to attend a Girl Guide Camp last year. Girl Guides aims to assist girls to empower girls and young women to grow into confident, self-respecting members of the community, developing confidence and life skills. GLOW Guides, Leederville is part of the organisation's Diversity Project.- and it fits very nicely into our Club's aim to support projects that promote and enhance our Nation's Diversity.

2020 National Youth Science Forum Report     

As part of our Youth Service, RC Karrinyup again sponsored students to attend the 2020 National Youth Science Forum.
