How Does RYPEN Work?

This residential weekend long program will see you engage with like-minded people, discover your values, build communication and leadership skills all whilst having fun! You will also get the chance to put your new-found skills to practical use!


Each participant on RYPEN is either sponsored by a Rotary club, a local business or by their family. As a starting point, contact your local Rotary club and ask if they will sponsor you. The organising committee can also assist with this process.


Participants will be transported by bus to and from the RYPEN venue. Every participant must travel to and from the event on the bus provided. This is integral to ensuring the creation of a working dynamic prior to reaching the venue.

What's on the Program?

That's Rotary's best-kept secret. You'll have to come along to find out. :-)

Don't worry. If your application is accepted, you will receive enough information to ensure you're fully prepared for everything on the RYPEN program.
