Tips to Support Rotary Youth in 2020

To say this year has been challenging would be an understatement, particularly for students who’ve had to give up proms, graduations, sports, and more young adult milestones.

Interact and Rotaract students are versatile. But they’re not invincible. Show you care by making meaningful connections with Rotary youth in your community:

  • Create back-to-school gift boxes: Purchase pre-wrapped snacks they can enjoy during late-night study sessions. Consider adding healthy options, such as dried fruit, granola bars, and oatmeal packets.

  • Offer your expertise: Offer to take a look at resumes or application letters. Provide healthy living tips. Help them navigate helpful community resources. Whatever your niche, seek opportunities to benefit students. 

  • Be a mentor: Sometimes, young professionals just need a listening ear. Offer to do a virtual coffee or meal meeting and talk about school, work, life - whatever is on their mind.

Rotary youth are the future of our organization, and they’re the future leaders of our community. Take time out of your busy schedule this fall to support our bright young Rotarians.
