Youth Services

Leadership is an essential aspect of Rotary — and we would love to offer both clubs and programs to help emerging leaders develop their skills. Through these groups, participants strengthen their leadership skills, serve their communities, increase their world understanding, build friendships, and more.

Cohase Rotary would love to sponsor youth clubs at local high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, or colleges. We are looking to partner with local schools. Please get in touch if you would like to make this happen!

EARLYACT

EarlyAct is a school-wide service club for elementary students from ages 5 to 13. It is sponsored by one of the local Rotary clubs in the township in which the school is located. The mission and operation of EarlyAct are closely linked to the ideals of Rotary and provide the foundation and natural succession into Interact.

EarlyAct provides young students the opportunity for gaining an increased awareness and knowledge of their community and the world. At a young age, all students can easily be encouraged to be caring and helpful. Their minds are open to recognize the dignity and worth of each individual which builds respect for others.

EarlyAct also engages students in character-building activities and prepares them for leadership roles to identify and carry out projects which benefit their school, local and global communities.

INTERACT

Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with others in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves.

ROTARACT

Rotaract brings together people ages 18-30 in universities and communities worldwide to organize service activities, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun. Rotary clubs sponsor them, but Rotaract members manage and fund their clubs independently. Rotaract members work closely with their local Rotary club, and may join after their Rotaract membership ends.

Joining Rotaract is more than just joining another service organization or business club — it’s joining an international family of young professionals and business professionals that spans over 160 different countries, with more than 1.2 million members. Rotaract is about empowering members to change the world with other great people that are just like family. Rotaract enables members to contribute to community service, work on international projects, continue developing their professional career through workshops and networking sessions, making friends with like-minded individuals.
