Each year, Rotary connects thousands of young people to a global network of friendship, service, and action. As Rotaractors and Interactors, they make a difference in communities at home and abroad. Through Rotary Youth Exchange, they explore new cultures. With Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, participants learn skills that will help them succeed as community leaders. Each year, 500,000 young people participate in Rotary Youth Service programs worldwide. Rotary Youth Services also includes reaching out to the most vulnerable youth and assisting those youth in need through Rotary International District and Global grants.
