RotaKids in District 1180

RotaKids - This is a bundle of fun for 7 to 12 years olds with energy, enthusiasm and great ideas for making a difference. RotaKids are based in primary and junior schools and work with local Rotary clubs to come up with projects which could be anything from fundraisers to sponsored events. All you need is some imagination.

District 1180 Rotakids - Home | Facebook

The birth of Rotakids as part of the Rotary Family has probably been one of the most exciting developments in the Rotary World in the last decade.

Rotakids caters for children aged between 7 and 12 years old and enables those involved to run their own club (in the same way as any Rotary Club operates) with elected officers (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer) and its members serving their school and local community by means of project based activities... (which may or may not fund raise as well). In addition to these, each club is expected to be involved with an activity at International level.
Rotakids are the youngest members of the Rotary Family and they provide a unique opportunity for Rotarians, Schools, Parents and Young People to work together. Rotakids believe that achievement, peace and fun go hand in hand and when a new Club is set up each Rotakid makes a special promise:
  • To be fair to all
  • To serve my community
  • To show respect for others
The Rotary Club of Neston set up the first four Rotakids Clubs in District 1180 and now District 1180 has around 20 clubs up and running.
When chartering a new club each Rotakid is presented with a badge, certificate and wrist band. All of our Rotakids have T shirts as well.
Rotakids really add to the great work going on in Schools. The members learn about leadership and management, how to generate ideas and with the help of Rotarians and Teachers how to make their own decisions. Rotakids also bring an exciting and practical approach to their support of the citizenship element of the curriculum by committing to make a difference in their local community and also around the World.
In doing this each Rotakid will enjoy a boost to their confidence and self esteem at a key age, as well as learn new skills and develop an understanding of how their actions can impact on others. This will help to broaden their horizons while making good friends along the way.
Each Rotakids Club is supported by a Rotary Club and this partnership ensures that each Rotakid benefits from being a member as they work to improve the lives of others.
In essence being a Rotakid brings out the best in those who are members.
