New Generations Expo
Rotaract, Interact, RYLA & Youth Exchange featured

For decades, Rotary hss foreseen the need to instill ethics and 'Service Above Self' behavior in the early development years of each person. Beginning in middle and high school years, Interact Clubs form the basis for learning Rotary ideals while going through their formal education. Teaching leadership is part of Rotary's worldwide mission, which at the high school level comes in the form of RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Academy) taking place at youth camps in summer months for incoming sophomores. Students who wish to broaden their worldview and experience the education and culture of another country can then participate in the Youth Exchange Study Abroad Scholarship program, allowing them to experience life in another country for 10 months.  Then, finally out of secondary school, they can look forward to continuing their Rotary service through Rotaract, which welcomes anyone from ages 18-30-ish.
