Rotary Youth Program of ENrichment (RYPEN)
The Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN) in Rotary International District 9800 is a Youth Leadership conference for young people who are between 15 and 17 AND are year 9, 10 and 11 students. The conference is a weekend long camp designed at developing young people’s potential through a mixture of lecture style sessions and adventure-based learning.
RYPEN is designed for students who are seen as the upcoming leaders in your school, not those students who are already leading and achieving amazing things or those at the bottom end, but those students who just need a bit of a push and a confidence boost to start achieving at their full potential. RYPEN has as its principal aim, to communicate to young people taking part in the program a series of ideas, problems and social experiences which will assist them in forming their own values and moral standards and allow them to broaden their horizons culturally, socially and academically. Nothing is forced upon the young people – they are free to discuss and interpret what they experience and above all, the Rotarians or Leaders who are involved in running the conference do not patronise them.
Through RYPEN students will begin developing skills in:
- Goal Setting
- Forming and defining their own values
- Leadership fundamentals and ethics
- Taking initiative
- Communication skills
- Problem solving and conflict management
- Community and Global Citizenship
