Carnforth Rotary Sponsors RYPEN Student

At our weekly meeting on Thursday 21 November, Carnforth Rotarians were given an informative talk by Naomi, a pupil from Carnforth High School. Carnforth Rotary sponsored Naomi to attend a week at Castlefield Field Studies Centre, Grange-Over-Sands on a RYPEN (Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment) course last June.

RYPEN is designed to promote teamwork and participation, friendship and social interaction; integrity, respect for other people and their cultures, accountability, empowerment and leadership.

Naomi had been rather nervous about taking part, but soon made new friends, increased her skills and grew in confidence.
