Try a new role. Clubs need leaders. Take the
first step and ask where your club needs help.
Rotaract is a service club for adults ages 18-30 to exchange
ideas, plan activities and projects, and socialize. Rotaract is
a global community of young adults taking action for positive
change through hands-on service projects, fun networking and
social activities, professional development opportunities, and
an international network of young leaders. Young professionals
in the community and university students may participate.
Interact is Rotary’s service club for young people
ages 12-18 and can be found in middle schools, high schools,
or the community. Working together, Interactors conduct
international and community service projects with the support
of their sponsoring Rotary club. Participants gain leadership
and organizational skills and give back to their communities.
ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE
Rotary facilitates international study abroad experiences
for secondary school students ages 15-19. Students are
cultural ambassadors over a few weeks to an academic year,
and are sponsored and hosted by Rotary clubs.
RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) is Rotary’s leadership
development program for young people of any age. Typically, RYLA
is designed by districts for seminar and experiential learning
and team-building for secondary school students, university
students, and young professionals. Participants are invited to
apply their new skills to lead and serve in their communities.
Rotary Peace Fellowships
Each year, Rotary funds some of the world’s brightest
professionals to study at our Rotary Peace Centers. The fellows
are committed to the advancement of peace, and many go
on to serve as leaders in national governments, the military,
law enforcement, and nongovernmental or international
organizations, such as the United Nations and World Bank.
The fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-
trip transportation, and all internship and field study expenses.
Learn more at www.rotary.org/peace-fellowships.
Club- and district-sponsored scholarships Clubs and districts
can create their own scholarships and fund them with a district
grant (for any type of study) or a global grant (for graduate
studies in one of Rotary’s areas of focus).
