Mirroring the RI People of Action campaign, we are starting a District wide new program, a monthly youth forum called: Youth of Action, Making a Difference. It'll be a series of online and in-person sessions (when it’s possible) to bring young people and Rotarians together to discuss the challenges and opportunities of living in today's society.
We want to create a sustainable program for our young people. The ultimate goal is for Rotarians and young people, related with Rotary, to go back to their communities and do service projects together related to these issues. Some of the thoughts would be:
  • how has COVID messed with your plans
  • what are the stress points at this time including not seeing friends, feeling bored and not feeling challenged
  • how did the social isolation affect your mental and emotional health.
  • Are the youth feeling frightened as to when this all will end and how it will affect their future progress and success in school and life?
