SUMMARY
 

Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN) is a weekend residential experience for youth aged 14-16 designed to develop skills that will assist them in the transition to adulthood.  Participants are involved in a variety of workshops and activities, which provide an opportunity for them to personally develop, gain self confidence, communication skills, challenge themselves, build friendships, and develop life skills

APPLICATION PROCESS

 
All applicants will need to be endorsed by a local Rotary Club who may also be able to provide financial sponsorship to attend.  Applications are open now and getting yourself to RYPEN is as simple as following the steps below! 
STEP 1
Rotary Club Support
 
All participants are endorsed by a Rotary Club and these Clubs may also be able to provide support on the cost to attend.
 
You should start by contacting your local Rotary Club (a list of clubs and contacts can be found here) to endorse your application. They will need to provide you with a contact person at the club and their email and phone number to complete Step 2 (usually this is the club's Youth Director).  They may also refer you to another club if they are unable to assist.  If you are having any issues please email us at rypen@rotary9640.org.
 
Secondly, you should agree any financial sponsorship arrangements with the club endorsing your application. You and the club may find it useful to complete a Financial Sponsorship Agreement.  This form does not need to be submitted with your application but is a record for you, your parents  / guardians and the club

  1. Application Form (collects contact and other details of you, your parents / guardians and the Rotary Club sponsoring you).  Once submitted, an email approval will be automatically generated for your parent / guardian and the sponsoring Rotary Club.  They will both need to approve by clicking the link on the email sent to them.
