Junior Rotarian Program


The Club sponsors two students (a senior and junior) from the three High Schools to join us at our once a month at our weekly meetings.  Each student is matched with a mentor with the goal of matching a mentor's career with the student's career interests.  The Junior Rotarian program is designed to offer the students an opportunity to interact with business and professional leaders of the community.


R.Y.L.A. (Rotary Youth Leadership Assembly) was officially adopted by Rotary International in 1971.  R.Y.L.A. aims to:


  • Demonstrate Rotary's respect and concern for youth;
  • Provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders;
  • Encourage leadership of youth by youth; and
  • Publicly recognize young people who are rendering service to their communities.


At the District level, the Hartford Rotary Club sponsors high school students to attend the June activities held at Springfield College's East Campus.  The activities included leadership, confidence building and trust building exercises.
