 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards on the Narrow Boat "Dream Catcher" 2004 to 2011
 
To commemorate the 100th year of Rotary a new International Rotary Youth Leadership Award was launched by Rotarian John Hughes of the Rotary Club of Royal Leamington Spa . Sadly the RYLA programme on Dream Catcher has come to an end after 7 wonderful years where we have given the experience of the canals to hundreds of youngsters though RYLA and our Young Carers programmes 
 
    
 
The RYLA programme received acclaim from Rotary International when it was launched in 2004 and although very different to other RYLA programmes, it qualified for Rotary Youth Leadership Award status. We wish to thank the Rotary International RYLA Committee for their continued support
 
"After reviewing your program, I believe that your submission certainly would qualify for the RYLA Certificate, and that you definitely have a unique venue in which to teach leadership, team-building, team-bonding, many cooperative skills, and all in the spirit of Rotary" (Mark Healy, Chairman of RYLA)
 
The first Rotary programme to use Dream Catcher was the International RYLA in 2005 for 8 students from Europe. Following on from this success the International RYLA in 2006 was combined with a RYLA programme for students from the UK. Click on the blue lines for links to the reports
 
          
 
The programmes were again extended in 2007 and besides the International and UK Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, we ran a RYLA for District 2430 in Turkey. We understand this was the first time a District in the UK had organised a RYLA for an overseas District

   

During the trip Rtn. Erhan Bakir, Rtn John Hughes and our students from Turkey were involved in a 4 hour video shoot for the ITV programme "Waterworld" culminating in 4 minutes of PR for Rotary being televised in 2008

 

We again expanded our programmes on DreamCatcher by launching a programme on the Narrowboat for Young Carers. This new programme started in Spring 2009 in partnership with various Young Carers Associations and in 2012 transferred to the adventure park at Blackwell where to date we have provided over 300 young carers with a respite break www.RotaryYoungCarers.org.uk
