This month Rotary celebrates Youth Services. From Rocky Mountain RYLA to Interact to Rotaract to Rotaraction to Youth Exchange, Rotary youth change the world with an energy, enthusiasm, and eye towards the world that inspires all of us as Rotarians to engage more deeply, more fully, and more presently with the communities we care about. Today’s youth have a strong sense of service to their communities, nations and the world.
As Rotarians it is our duty to get our children, our neighbors, and our friends involved in service, philanthropy, and community building early. In so doing we offer ourselves an opportunity to learn from today’s youth and have an impact on their future and generations to come.
Not sure about how to get involved with young people in your community? Check out the RI website for all the youth services, many of which are active and thriving in our District!
Our young people, from Rotary Corps to New Generations can give us all a new life as we seek to put service above self, so let’s all be proactive in finding ways to encourage young people, sponsor them, mentor them, support them, and learn from them.
And, just a reminder, don’t forget to register for the District Celebration where young and old will come together to celebrate, learn, and share in fellowship!
Yours in Rotary,
Abbas Rajabi, District Governor
