Next Generation of Leaders
Rotary believes in developing the next generation of leaders. Our programs help younger leaders build leadership skills, expand education and learn the value of service. 
Every year, over 350,000 youth participate in Rotary’s youth programs. We encouraged Interactors, RYLA participants, Youth Exchange students, and their mentors to get involved in service. They needed more guidance on getting started, the type of projects they should do, and effective strategies for engagement. 
Over the past year, Caitlin Cangialosi, Rotary International Programs and Engagement Specialist worked together with the National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC), a leading organization in youth engagement, to develop new resources using an innovative approach to youth engagement, known as service-learning, which empower young people to enact real change in their communities by combining community service with learning objectives.
