"The greatest resource of each nation is its youth.
Young people of today are the men of tomorrow and Rotarians are not allowed to forget their duties towards future generations".
Following this indication given by founder Paul Harris, Rotary has always tried to involve young people in their training, wellness,
future happiness and ability to face what will come tomorrow.
Rotary is aware that it is necessary to offer new generations opportunities and means to widen their visions, useful experiences and
hopes in order to favour them. This goal has inspired our Association since its inception in carrying forward the ambitious
project of involving young people in a journey based on responsibility and trust, by developing various programmes which
are the Fifth Avenue of Service of Rotary International. Different programmes according to age, represented by Interact,
Rotaract, RYLA, Youth Exchange and NGSE.
We Rotarians believe that these programmes can also be used to build the prerequisites for a future peaceful life together in the
world: not an utopia, but a dream that can come true, because as Nelson Mandela said "something seems impossible until it is done"!
