Youth Leadership Development Competition

This competition is one of our longest running youth projects and it rewards young people with clear leadership potential based on their extra-curricular activities. Winners will visit Belfast and meet with local political, business leaders, then travel to Dublin for further meetings with leaders and then the highlight of the trip will be to debate a variety of motions in the European Parliament in Strasbourg at Euroscola. Perhaps as a result of the rigorous selection process, our Irish representatives always aquit themsleves extremely well at Euroscola, and act as excellent ambassadors for Ireland.

The Rotary Club of Cork has run the Youth Leadership Development Competition enthusiastically for many years now, with our members forming the interviewers for the school and club stages. Last year we selected the eventual winner who was one of the Irish representatives at Euroscola. This year our club will be hosting the Regional Finals on Monday, November 18th at the Metropole Hotel, Mc Curtain Street, Cork. The interviews will take place between 10.00am and 1.00p.m. and the winners will be announced at the luncheon following immediately after.
