IDEA: Connect and provide support for Interactors and other young leaders in District 5370. 

PLAN: Create a platform (Instagram) to spread the word about digital meetups, games and more to Interactors and young leaders, through Instagram there will be links to online games, Zoom chats, how-to-videos, fitness classes and more run by a group of young leaders within District 5370 that is made up from the 2020 RYLE and RYPEN committee and volunteers.

This new opportunity to connect our young leaders will have a trial run, where the team will host these sessions twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays – starting with Tuesday, April 7th and Saturday, April 11th.  If this trial run succeeds, the team is hoping to increase events to three times a week: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The Youth Connect team recognizes that the current situation happening within our communities can make our young leaders feel stressed, anxious, and uncertain about what lies ahead.

In an effort to ensure that young leaders across our district feel supported and have access to the right support and resources, these Youth Connect events will start and end with links to resources as well as contact information for Lesa Mueller and Yvone Joubert – two members of the Rotary District 5370 team that are known by many young leaders in District 5370 – who will work to ensure that students who are in need (mental health supports, food insecurity, etc) can reach out and be connected to members of their local community who can help. Our Youth Connect events will have each session focus or introduce something related to Rotary.
