2017 marks another milestone in the history of OAUK North West Area, when we celebrate 40 years of our youth club aka ReActive8. Our youth club has been successfully run by dedicated volunteers over the past forty years. We would like to thank all the past and present members that attend the youth club.
Over the years, the youth club has grown, not only in membership, but also in providing a range of varied activities for all age groups from the young members to adults – with the introduction of activities such as Yoga, Zumba and Squash for adults in the last few years.
We are proud to host such a vibrant youth club with very energetic volunteers and members. They have, over the years, been very successful in securing several trophies in the annual sports days in various categories. Including the famous Basanti.
Many of our youth have been involved and volunteered at Reactive8 for quite a few years, this is a stepping stone for them. Many have also helped at various other events throughout the year such as Halloween, Telematch, Paryushan, and Swami Vatsalya Bhojan. In so doing they will have acquired skills that can prove very useful both inside and outside of the Oshwal community. It would help them take up later roles within OAUK and also be useful both at university and future careers.
We would like to see our youth club and other events continue into the foreseeable future and for that to happen, it is crucial that we appreciate our youth’s involvement and encourage them to take an active role in shaping a better future for our community.
