Designed for young adults 18-24 years, the programme is a challenging five days live-in experience designed to help individuals develop growth within themselves and their communities through harnessing their leadership potential.
Held at Forest Lakes Camp, Otaki.
Each Club is encouraged to nominate one or more participants aged 18 to 24 years for this annual programme.
Rotary Clubs have the opportunity to canvass their communities for young people with leadership potential. Participants may be in employment (from trades to professionals), undertaking study, competitive sport, recipients of community awards or similar.
