We’ve had a history of success with youth programs at our Club. Our Rotaract and Interact Clubs are viable, but there are new challenges today with schools under pressure to develop alternative learning systems. What do we need to do to ensure Rotary’s youth programs grow stronger in a future where great leaders will be more essential than ever? Fortunately, we have help in figuring out how to proceed with current conditions in this new world.
