Locks Heath Rotary has variously supported a number of youth projects with local schools and has included “Musical Youth,” “Young Writer” and “Youth Speak’s” including supporting those requiring additional schooling challenges.
Each activity provides opportunities for participants to demonstrate their skills and enhance their confidence by presenting in a competitive but fun and enjoyable environment.
