Competitionsyouthspeaks170

In addition to the above Rotary Club of Reigate works with local schools to organize a range of competitions including:

        • Youth Speaks – where teams of three debate a subject of their choice.
        • Butterfly competition
        • Young Scientist competition

Dictionaries

In two local Primary schools we provide illustrated dictionaries each year to the leavers.

Mock Interviews

We provide mock job interviews to six-formers whereby they submit a CV to a panel of two members who play the roles of interviewers. At the end of the interview, feedback is given regarding the strengths and weaknesses of their performance. This gives the students valuable experience of what to expect in the world of work and increases their confidence.

Young Carers

Working with Surrey County Council we sponsor an annual outing for a group of young carers, many of whom never have the opportunity to have a day out or to visit a theatre.
