Young People

Thousands of young people get involved with Rotary’s competitions, programmes and activities, all designed to unlock their potential.

Creating opportunities and

 unlocking potential.


One of Rotary’s leading commitments is to offer young people the opportunity to develop their skills and broaden their horizons.

Through RotaKids, Interact and Rotaract clubs, there are ways which young people from ages 7 to 30 can get involved with volunteering in their communities in a friendly and sociable environment.

Our national youth competitions in a range of creative fields give young people the chance to showcase their talents and win some amazing prizes.

Other activity schemes such as Rotary Youth Leadership Awards and Rotary Youth Exchange help young people learn not only about themselves, but the world around them.

Rotary members are People of Action. We change the lives of thousands of young people each year.
