Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment

RYPEN holds weekend camps in leadership for Grade 10 students. It is an Australian designed project for young people aged 14 to 17. 

Camps are held in March in the North and South of Tasmania.

RYPEN sets out to broaden horizons and lift aspirations in a supervised residential weekend seminar.  It’s aim is to communicate to young people a series of ideas, problems and social experiences which will assist them in forming their own values and moral standards and broaden their horizons culturally, socially and academically.

Nominations are encouraged through Rotary clubs approaching their nominated schools.
They are directed to the district RYPEN chair for selection and advice.

The cost for the weekend is usually carried by the sponsoring Rotary club.

RYPEN participants leave us with lots of effective strategies to support their personal leadership goals in their school, community or future life, along with wonderful memories of their weekend and a great group of new friends.

Rypennians should be encouraged to address their sponsoring Rotary club on their return.
