Calling young leaders 18 – 25 in the Midwest community
The Rotary Club of Geraldton is calling for young people aged between 18 – 25 to apply for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.
The program will run from Saturday 31st January – Friday 6th February 2015 and is an intensive training program aimed at potential young leaders in our community. Applicants attend a 7 day camp just out of Perth and the rewards are ongoing. A number of Midwest leaders have attended this program over the years and have reaped the rewards.
Objectives are to;
- Develop their personal effectiveness and self confidence
- Develop leadership skills as well as the capacity to contribute effectively as team members
- Gain a wider understanding of the challenges that present themselves in a changing society.
A variety of fun and interactive developmental activities are provided during the 7 day camp including goal setting, teamwork exercises, hike and bush camp, leadership skills, abseiling, high ropes, conflict resolution, public speaking, magazine/CD preparation, time management, problem solving, overcoming obstacles, bush navigation, effective communication and interpersonal skills.
Employers interested in sending their staff members are encouraged to apply.
