Rotary works with young people in a variety of ways to develop their skills and provide opportunities for them to enjoy a greater awareness of the world about them.

Young Rotary: Rotaract, Interact, Rotakids and more.....
In addition to the many competitions and award schemes there is a range of other opportunities for the younger generation.
Rotaract clubs for 18-30 year-olds have been part of the Rotary family for some years and are excellent partners when it comes to engaging with the younger generation. Interact clubs for 13 -18 year olds are the fastest growing branch of Rotary and District 1090 has seen an amazing number of clubs spring up over the past couple of years, with more in the pipeline! Rotakids, the latest addition to the family, have also been popular in the Thames Valley area as schools recognise what a useful addition they can be to citizenship areas of the curriculum.
The Youth Exchange programme offers Adventures of a Lifetime to young people aged 15 -25
