The Rotary Club of Cincinnati and Rotary International offer unique learning opportunities for youth and young adults through the following programs:
4-Way Speech Contest – The Rotary 4-Way Test Speech Contest was conceived as a means for Rotarians to support students to make good choices in the issues they face in everyday life as teens. The speech contest enables Rotarians to reward teens who not only set healthy and ethical life goals for themselves but who also seek to influence their peers in a positive way. Contests are held at the local and district level each year.
Foreign Exchange Programs for High School Students – High School Students are given the opportunity to go abroad to learn a different culture and make new friends. The Rotary Club of Cincinnati works in conjunction with the Rotary International network of local clubs in different countries to sponsor students.
Interact – Interact Clubs gives students ages 12-18 the chance to make a real difference while having fun. Every Interact club carries out two service projects a year: one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding.
RYLA – Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership program coordinated by Rotary Clubs around the globe. Each year, thousands of young people participate in this program. Young people ages 14–18 in the Tri-State area are sponsored by the Rotary Club of Cincinnati to attend the camp run by our Rotary District 6670.
