Students and Youth

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

Who are Rotarians?

Something that all Rotary club members have in common: We take action. As community volunteers, we reach out to neighbours in need. We build, support, & organise. We save lives. We work locally & globally.

The Rotary Foundation

The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

WANTED: Hospitable Rotarians

 

logo-friendship-exchange.gifRotary has always prided itself on its international hospitality, so please show that 1260 is no slouch in the hospitality stakes. 

Rotarians from our District were wonderfully hosted inSouth Australia in January, and a larger group goes to Auckland next February,and our travellers will of course be themselves hosting when the Aussies & Kiwis return next May and June, BUT in both cases we are hosted in 3 places, so will need extra hosts to welcome the incomers, especially as we have had requests for stay in two places.

The obligation is not great - to host a delightful rotarian couple for B & B for 5 nights with a couple of evening meals. Of course, there will be a programme of visits which hosts will be welcome to take part in, and we will probably have a couple of evening meals together, and visitors are almost certain to want to join in your club meeting if it is while they are with you, but the minimum is the B & B.

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ASAP, and make new international friends.

We nearly have a team for another exchange to eastern Canada - the maritime provinces, which would probably be in September 2009. Do let me know if you are at all interested. These visits have no "presentation" requirements, though of course we attend local meetings, and introduce ourselves if asked.
