Youth Services


Rotarians are committed to Youth Service: helping young people achieve their potential. 

We run a vast variety of activities aimed at recognising, developing, and celebrating the achievements of young people. We help develop the citizens of tomorrow to enjoy challenges, develop strong bonds of friendship, exceed their expectations, broaden their horizons and realise their dreams.
These blend well with the school curricula, enriching and enhancing the school timetable and beyond.

These are just some of the youth opportunities we are involved with:


  • Rotary in Schools
