RRC believes that few missions are more important than supporting our YOUTH.
Leadership skills are strengthened through Leadership 2020, where 80 RHS students participate in a day of workshops and hear an expert leadership speaker at our meeting. We sponsor 10 students to RYLA annually. We share career advice on several Career Days at local schools reaching 100s of students.
For 23 years, RRC has provided volunteers and food to support the Roswell Rotary Relays, a large multi-school track meet benefitting Roswell High School athletic programs, with over 2000 athletes and spectators.
Annually, we recognize an outstanding student and teacher from each of our 12 Roswell schools at our meetings and award them a certificate and gift card.
We award three $1500 scholarships to Roswell seniors annually in honor of former Rotarian Tom Zachary and one Power of One Scholarship in honor of Rotarian Dave McCleary. We award a scholarship annually to a deserving GRSP student.
The annual Roswell Youth Day Parade in October is a fun family-oriented event with over 2000 spectators. Rotarians and Interactors build a float and walk in the parade, giving out candy to spectators and increasing RRC's visibility and impact in Roswell.
Over 40 RRC members read and provided The Invisible Boy book to Kindergarten classes encouraging students to read.
