Youth Services - For New Generations


New Generations is involved in programs that work with young people. 

Rotary Youth Exchange

NOTE: Please see the December 5 event if you are interested in learning more about this program. 

The Rotary Youth Exchange is an international program that has been a key part of Rotary for many years. Our club participates both by sponsoring a student to go overseas, and by welcoming a student.  

In 2010-2011, Emily Winson went to Chile, and our club hosted Ale Medrano from Mexico.  

In 2011 - 2012, Allison Williams is inTaiwan, and we're welcoming Nils Thornevik from Haninge, Sweden.  


Each year the Club sponsors a candidate to attend the District's Rotary Youth Leadership Award Program. RYLA candidates are ages 14- 30 and are chosen for their leadership potential. They attend an all expense paid week-long workshop to discuss leadership skills and learn those skills through practice.


The Club sponsored a new Rotaract Club at York University.  Rotaract is a Service Club for young adults 18 to 30.

With Rotaract Youth can: 

  • Develop professional leadership skills.

  • Serve the community & promote goodwill.

  • Gain an understanding of the need, problems & opportunities in the local community & worldwide.


Each year the Rotary Club of Etobicoke provides a number of Secondary and High school scholarships to promote education, foster community service, high ethical standards and the advancement of goodwill and peace in our communities.
