Community,  Community Service pertains to those activities which Rotarians undertake to improve the quality of life in their community. It frequently involves assistance to youth, the aged, handicapped and others who look to Rotary as a source of hope for a better life.
The committee seeks to raise the awareness of Rotarians, young men and women and those that work with young people, of the many opportunities offered to young people via Rotary. These include the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA), Youth Exchange, Youth Speaks, Young Chef, Interact clubs, and a range of other cultural and sporting activities.
