Every Rotarian Every Year & Every Rotarian An Example to Youth

Every Rotarian Every Year
The Every Rotarian, Every Year effort encourages Rotarians worldwide to participate fully in their Rotary Foundation. Endorsed by the Foundation's Trustees and the Rotary International Board of Directors, the purpose of the Every Rotarian, Every Year initiative is twofold:

* Encourage every Rotarian to participate in a Foundation humanitarian or educational project that truly makes a difference in the world, every year.

* Encourage every Rotarian to contribute to the Foundation's Annual Programs Fund, every year.
The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International, throughout its history, has prided itself on being responsive to the challenges that confront humanity. Rotarians, through their spirit of volunteerism and generous philanthropy, remain at the heart of the Foundation's mission to eradicate polio and further its humanitarian, educational, and cultural exchange programs worldwide. As global leaders for doing good in the world, Rotarians work together to change lives in meaningful ways; they bridge the divide among people to foster world understanding and peace.

We hope that every Rotarian will take this opportunity to participate in their Rotary Foundation and help to grow and sustain the Foundation's many wonderful programs. The generous support from Every Rotarian, Every Year to the Annual Programs Fund rebuilds impoverished communities and nations by resolving conflict, championing human rights, eradicating disease, feeding the hungry, and educating children and adults.

Contributions to the Annual Programs Fund ensure a brighter future for all. Imagine how much more good we could do with the participation of Every Rotarian, Every Year. Learn more about what your gift can do.

Every Rotarian an Example to Youth
In much of the official literature of Rotary International relating to service to young people, a special slogan will be found--"Every Rotarian an Example to Youth." These words were adopted in 1949 by the Rotary International Board of Directors as an expression of commitment to children and youth in each community in which Rotary clubs exist. Serving young people has long been an important part of the Rotary program.

Youth service projects take many forms around the world. Rotarians sponsor Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, athletic teams, handicapped children's centers, school safety patrols, summer camps, recreation areas, safe driving clinics, county fairs, child care centers and children's hospitals. Many clubs provide vocational counseling, establish youth employment programs and promote use of the 4-Way Test. Increasingly, drug and alcohol abuse prevention projects are being supported by Rotarians.

In every instance, Rotarians have an opportunity to be Role Models for the young men and women of their community. One learns to serve by observing others. As our youth grow to become adult leaders, it is hoped each will achieve that same desire and spirit to serve future generations of children and youth. The slogan accepted over 40 years ago is just as vital today. It is a very thoughtful challenge--"Every Rotarian an Example to Youth."
