“It’s all about teamwork” says Tom Bailey-Green, winner of a Rotary Youth Leadership Award, talking to President Paul Lucas and members and guests of Colwall Rotary Club in the Malvern Hills area, who sponsored him on the scheme.
Tom, 16, when asked what he’d taken away from the course and been able to apply in real life, said “I learned that, if people don’t work together, they won’t achieve anything. I’ve applied that lesson in college and used a bit of my newly-acquired leadership skills in groups that I am involved with.”
Paul said that Tom was a great advert for RYLA, and he would welcome nominations from schools, employers and local organisations for a young person to be sponsored by the club for this year’s event.
Tom was one of the speakers at the Rotary Club’s Youth Night, along with Miguel Dean who announced that Lottery funding had been secured for his Young Voices project.
