New Generations Service Exchange

New Generations Service Exchange is a volunteering programme which provides opportunities for young people between 18 and 30 to undertake placements across the world or in their home country lasting anything from three weeks to six months. Placements may give vocational experience or humanitarian service or a mix of both relating to Rotary’s six areas of focus. This is the ideal programme for young people wanting to do something worthwhile for others and beneficial for their own careers before or during their studies or into their professional lives, while developing their personal skills and increasing their understanding of the world.

Click here if you are interested in taking part in the programme and want to find out more or register your interest. Or if you are involved with an international or community project which may have scope for providing placements on this programme please email us.

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) 

This is a leadership development program which focuses on secondary school students, university students, or young professionals. RYLA events are typically 3–10 days long and cover a variety of topics including:

• Leadership fundamentals and ethics
• Communication skills
• Problem solving and conflict management
• Community and global citizenship

Rotary Youth Exchange 

One of the best youth exchange programmes in the world where participants can broaden their minds and their horizons with or without vocational experience or academic study. Exchanges can vary from a two week camp or tour, to a short term home stay, to a full year living and studying in another country.

The family of Rotary

Within Rotary we have clubs which cater for a range of age groups beginning with RotaKids for 7-12 year olds, Interact for 12-18 year olds and Rotaract for 18-30 year olds. These clubs, together with our programmes for young people, make up our Rotary family.

To get involved in RotaKids or Interact, contact your local Rotary club. To get involved with Rotaract, visit the Rotaract in Great Britain & Ireland website and follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
