Youth Projects

< Previous    

Rotary's programs for students and young people can change the lives of those who participate. Through these programs, young people can earn scholarships, travel on cultural exchanges or help a community through a service project.

Young people learn about the principles of ethics, service and fellowship that Rotarians follow.
