Rayle Roberts – Chairperson/Director
Rayle Roberts is a local Psychotherapist who has been involved in community services, both in the Cayman Islands and abroad, for the past 30 years. In his professional capacity, he also contributes to the community through trainings and speaking engagements to corporate and non-profit groups which cover a myriad of topics.
From his community service as a young child in church, Mr. Roberts’ level of service and commitment to the community has evolved to where he has served as the Vice-President (2000-2008) and President (2008-2012) of the Cayman Islands Athletic Association (CIAA); during his term as President, he oversaw one of the most successful Carifta Games hosted by the Cayman Islands. He has also just recently founded a track club to train young people in the art of track and field as well as life. Since 2000, Mr. Roberts has been an active member of the Lions Club; he is currently the 1st Vice President slated to assume the role of President in 2014. He has also served in various capacities on other boards and committees such as the National Drug Council, Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Library Committee, all of which contribute to the well-being of society and young people.
After the tragic and untimely transition of his wife in 2008, Mr. Roberts felt the best way to honour her memory and continue to address the social issues that she passionately supported was to establish the Estella Scott-Roberts Foundation. He feels that community service is one of the most important ways that an individual can consistently contribute to their society, and Mr. Roberts hopes that his community service efforts and the work of the Foundation will continue to make a positive difference in the Cayman Islands.
