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. The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world. From the number one goal of the eradication of polio, to disaster recovery worldwide, the programs and grants of the Rotary Foundation are changing the world.

Vocational Service

Director of Vocational Service : Chetan Kale

Through Vocational Service, we:

  • Serve others by using our unique skills to address community needs.
  • Empower others through training and skill development.
  • Inspire others to act with integrity by following Rotary’s guiding principles.

Vocational Service includes connecting our professions and professional networks with our Rotary club activities, using our expertise to address community problems and help others discover new vocational opportunities and interests, and promoting Rotary’s committment to integrity in our professional as well as personal lives.

Youth Service

Director of Youth Service: Maria Caselli

Rotary believes in developing the next generation of leaders. Our programs help young leaders build leadership skills, expand education, and learn the value of service. We are involved in many different areas to help support and grow the youth of our community. Please come and join us!

Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30. Rotaract clubs are either community or university based, and they’re sponsored by a local Rotary club. This makes them true “partners in service” and key members of the family of Rotary.

Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.

RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards)
One of the goals of Rotary is to help young people develop their leadership abilities and self-confidence to the fullest. To accomplish that goal, Rotary clubs around the world prepare thousands of young leaders through RYLA programs each year.

Camp RYLA is a four-day camp which strengthens leadership skills and capabilities of high school students through physical, mental, emotional, and intellectual challenges.  There is an emphasis on problem solving, teamwork, and interaction with other outstanding students and volunteer counselors and presenters.
