Rotary for the future generations
Programmes for young people
The Family of Rotary
Within Rotary we have clubs which cater for a range of age groups beginning with RotaKids for 7-12 year olds, Interact for 12-18 year olds and Rotaract for 18-30 year olds. These clubs, together with our programmes for young people, make up our Rotary Family..
RotaKids is an exciting way for those 12 and under to lead and engage in important, lively activities that will make a positive difference in their school, in their local community and globally. At the same time RotaKids develop the ability and confidence to take up their place in society as responsible, successful, effective citizens both now and in the future. It is sponsored by a local Rotary Club in or near the town in which the school or group is located. It is chartered through RIBI.As citizenship is part of the school curriculum this is an opportunity for Rotary to support and expand the work already happening in school. The decisions made always involve the RotaKids. Jobs for fundraising or service projects can be divided up between the class in lesson times
