We are so fortunate at Beecroft Rotary as our membership consists of a number of scientists and also science teachers all of whom a keen to help our youth during these programs.
This is a great program for year 9 & 10 students. Each program is designed to provide students who have an interest in science with an opportunity to engage in a wide range of fascinating science activities under the guidance of scientists who love their work.
The program takes place in over thirty-five universities and tertiary institutions and students get to meet and hear senior lecturers in the lecture theatres. The program also provides information about further studies in science, technology and engineering. It highlights the wide range of careers that allow students to pursue their interest and abilities in the sciences. One aspect of the program often commented on by participants is the opportunity to meet and share ideas with students from different schools.
Rotary is involved and sponsors some great YOUTH SERVICE PROGRAMS throughout the year. Our objective within Youth Service is to prepare our youth - all young people up to the age of 30 - for a world of challenges and opportunities. By improving their life skills, we hope to help them achieve a better future, while recognising the diversity of their individual needs. Here is just a brief view of some of the wonderful services Rotary can provide.
ROTARY YOUTH SERVICE PROJECTS take many forms around the world. Rotarians sponsor athletic teams, centres for disabled children, school safety patrols, summer camps, orphanages, recreation areas, safe driving clinics, county fairs, child-care centres, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops and children's hospitals. Many clubs provide vocational counselling, establish youth employment programs
