We look forward to your participation.


THe  range of programmes for students and youth offered by the clubs of  Rotary District 1070  can change the lives of those who participate. Through these programmes and competitions, young people can:

  • Earn scholarships, 
  • Travel on cultural exchanges
  • Help a community through a service project. 


Rotary competitions are designed to enable young people to demonstrate and develop their skills and talents and to build their levels of self confidence and life skills.
