Rotary Student Program

Rotarians Align High School Students with Business Professionals Living the "Dream Career"

Piloted in 2007, the Rotary Student Program is a mentoring initiative that has helped thousands of students create a connection with future possibilities. Through the program, students are given the opportunity to meet with business professionals living the dream career, securing lifelong mentors, gaining scholarship opportunities, landing internships and in some cases, landing jobs. Through the process, Rotarians provide a viable community service, spread awareness of Rotary and increase the ability to do good in the world. With the support of Rotary International, including Rotary.com features and RI Convention presentations - 2015 Sao Paulo, Brazil and 2013 Lisbon, Portugal, clubs from over 60 countries have pledged program adoption. Today, website traffic has risen to 125 countries, with over 12,000 unique visitors and participating clubs citing spiked Rotary Club and Interact Club interest and growth.
