Youth in Rotary

There are tremendous opportunities for young people to be engaged with and benefit from Rotary world wide.  Submenu links available here include:

  • Youth Exchange - The Rotary Youth Exchange Program (YEP) is the heart of Rotary's youth programs.  High-school aged children have the opportunity to spend a fully funded year abroad, learning about other cultures and often another language.  The decades that this program has been in operation have demonstrated that this program helps produce future leaders.
  • Rotaract - Affiliated clubs for young adults aged 18-30.
  • Interact - Affiliated clubs for children aged 12-18.
  • Rotary Youth Leadership Awards - RYLA is a long weekend where young people of various ages gain leadership skills.
