For years there have been Four Avenues of Service: Club. Community, International and Vocational.
In 2010, the Rotary International Board approved New Generations Service at the fifth Avenue of Service.
The 4 key programs under the New Generations Chair, Mark Eliot, are Interact, Rotoract, RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) and the Rotary Youth Exchange
We need to understand how the new Avenue of Service relates to the other four Avenues of Service.
A recommendation for the Southern clubs has been made to refer to the 2007 Manual of Procedures – New Generations Section (pages 95-102) until the new Manual comes out.
Rotarians need to know the costs related to the New Generations Programs. Chairs of the Interact, Rotoact and RYLA are expected to discuss the costs and benefits to the Rotarian by sponsoring these programs.
An Interact Club was formed in November 2010 from the Tustin School District High Schools. Cindy Speer is the Interact Club Adviser.
