Thousands of young people from Primary School to University age participate in Rotary programs to learn skills that will help them become future leaders and members of their community. The youth programmes allow the young people to discover more about themselves and the world by participating in community projects, leadership training, or cultural exchanges. Young people also learn about the principles of ethics, service and fellowship that Rotarians exemplify and enjoy.
Youth Service embraces a diverse range of Rotary programs for young people of various age groups. The aims of these programmes include personal development, education, community service, competitions, international understanding and goodwill, travel through student exchange and just plain good fun.
Interact:clubs, sponsored by individual Rotary clubs are youth clubs for 12-18 year olds. Every year “Interactors” complete at least two projects in their communities one of them international, helping them to build friendships and a better understanding with young people in other countries.
