Youth Service

Bette Hall of Calabasas Club
Senior Assistant Governor - Youth Service

Today’s youth and young adults are tomorrow’s leaders. Their actions will significantly shape the world’s future -- and that of Rotary -- for years to come.
Rotary provides leadership and personal development opportunities through community service, club management, as well as foreign cultural exchange activities to teenagers and young adults to cultivate within these young people the commitment to service, high ethical standards, and peace.
Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact Clubs are typically high school based sponsored by Rotary Clubs, yet are self-governing and self-supporting.
Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30. Rotaract clubs are either community or university based, and they’re sponsored by a local Rotary club.

  • Provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders
