Youth Engaged in Service - Rotary Program for Incoming 11th graders

The Rotary Youth Engaged in Service Program (YES) provides unique local and international service opportunities to

grade 11 high school students.

  • Local community organizations receive hundreds of volunteer hours as each student commits to a minimum of eighty hours of meaningful service during the school year.
  • Villagers at international service sites are provided with much needed assistance and develop positive relationships with Americans and Canadians.
  • Students experience a culture quite unlike their own, causing them to reevaluate their priorities and goals.
  • Rotarians become more enthusiastic about fundraising when they learn of the significant impact of their efforts.
