Youth Programs
    Rotary Youth Programs

Interact is an international organization of service and social clubs for young people of secondary school age that fosters leadership and responsible citizenship and promotes international understanding and peace. Interact clubs are sponsored by Rotary clubs which provide guidance and inspiration, but Interact clubs are self-governing and self-supporting. The membership base of a club can be drawn from the student body of a single school or from two or more schools from the same community.
Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30. Rotaract clubs are community-based or university-based and are sponsored by Rotary clubs. Club members – commonly known as Rotaractors – participate in projects that assist their communities and advance international understanding. They also engage in activities related to professional development and leadership training.
There are currently 4 active Rotaract Clubs in the District.  See Rotaract Club Information
   Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive training program for community youth leaders. Young people chosen for their leadership potential attend an all-expenses-paid seminar, camp, or workshop to discuss leadership skills and to learn those skills through practice. RYLA is organized differently from area to area. In our District 7230, high school sophomores get this extraordinary experience.
   Rotary Youth Exchange
Each year, local Rotary Districts and Clubs worldwide arrange thousands of international Youth Exchanges for high school-aged students. A primary goal of the program is to foster world understanding by way of intercultural exchange. There are two principal types of exchanges, either long-term exchanges (an academic year) or short-term exchanges (from several days to several weeks).
