YOUTH SERVICE MONTH
Rotary International's structured programs for Youth Service are: Interact, Rotaract, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Youth Exchange. The month of May is designated as “Youth Service Month” to focus on all Rotary activities that support the development of young people up to the age of 30.
In our district, we have a very vibrant Interact program, particularly in thanks to PDG Bob Carroll. He has a passion for youth and has showed that numerous times. You may not know but his son-in-law has begun a Scouting Interact program. All the groups are busy with service projects and fellowship with one another. Be sure and encourage them when you see them.
Global Youth Service Day (GYSD is a coordinated annual event which gathers young people around the world in conducting community service, service learning, and youth voice activities that benefit their communities, their countries, and the world. Activities are organized in more than 100 countries each April to help mark the celebrations, and engage millions, making it the largest annual celebration of young volunteers.
Speaking about Global Youth Service Day, Jane Goodall commented, "I have often said that every individual counts, every individual has a role to play, and every individual makes a difference. Global Youth Service Day proves it." Kofi Annan said that, "Volunteers are some of our most valued partners, and Global Youth Service Day celebrates the efforts of the youngest of them."
