The Rotary Youth Transition Seminar (RYTS) is designed for young people aged 16-18 years of age to develop their leadership, interpersonal and practical life skills.  Participants will hear from inspiring guest speakers and participate in activities that will challenge them on many different levels.
 
Don't take our word for it though.  This is what one of our 2019 attendees, Jess, had to say about her experience at RYTS -
 
"I honestly feel like this week changed my life, the way you learn about yourself and the beautiful people around you, and the deep special connections you make are amazing beyond words.  On top of that it's literally so incredibly fun!  So incredibly grateful to have this experience as part of my life and the way I look at life now, I couldn't recommend it enough."
