Youth in Our Community

Rotary is at the heart of every community. Wherever there is a town or a city, there is a Rotary club and members are passionate about the communities in which they live and work. This is very much the way our members feel about our community of Sherborne, and as a community which has many schools, much of what we do in the town centres around young people. 

We are actively involved with the schools and clubs providing support in a number of ways ranging from running national Rotary competitions, including the popular Youth Speaks and Young Writer, to supporting the local youth club.

Our Club is often able to provide funding for activities such as RYLA, the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and since the 2012 Olympic Games we have awarded two bursaries each year to pupils of the Gryphon School who aspire to achieve national and international level in their chosen sports.
