New Generation Programs

The Mitchelton Rotary Club is a strong supporter of youth programs and currently is sponsoring students in a range of programs:
National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) is held in Canberra and Perth in January each year for Year 11 students with a keen interest in science who are interested in pursuing a career in science.
The program offers students the opportunity to explore various areas of science as well as providing many opportunities for personal development and team building.
Further information may be obtained by visiting the NYSF website: or by contacting Derek Jones on 33669505.
We usually support one or more students by paying 50% of the attendance costs.
