Youth Service recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.details
We're for Communities
The reason we say this is because we often get asked "What does Rotary do?" We are a diverse group of people, from all walks of life, who action local, national and international projects. The Rotary movement is big, with 34,282 clubs and over 1.2 million members worldwide. As you can imagine there are a lot of different projects going on.
Our Hemel Hempstead Club is involved in stroke awareness and handtool collections, in tech tournaments for the young and Christmas carol concerts for the elderly. We solve murder mysteries over lunch just for fun and invite to frugal suppers to raise awareness of the homeless.
2016 saw the arrival of our Santa Sleigh, which we intend to make available to a range of community groups. For more detail, click here.
Do you want to know more about what we do? Do come along. Find out about membership and our Friends for Rotary scheme. There are many ways in our club you can get involved to be for your community.
