District 9910 has a long tradition of outstanding service in the area of youth services with great support and forward thinking from District leaders.

We often hear that our youth is our future. This is certainly true and one of the reasons that we focus on literacy, leadership training, and expanding training in ethics for young people. These are the people who will be running our country and our world within the next 20 years. 

Rotarians have always taken a sincere interest in helping to prepare the next generation-with programs and projects that help with health and education, and lead the way to world peace and understanding. Beyond this fact, young people are also the future of our organisation if we choose for Rotary to thrive beyond our lifetime. Through our Rotary youth programs, we have the opportunity to not only provide service that is the keystone of our organisation, but also to develop relationships and provide exposure to our wonderful organisation and the ideals of "Service Above Self" to the next generation.
Many of these programmes involve schools and are often marketed directly through the schools' Principal, Department Head or Vocational Guidance department.
You can also approach your local Rotary club directly.
