Roswell Rotary has always actively worked with and supported the youth of Roswell. In the early days, Roswell Rotary helped raise money at Roswell High School for the football field and stands and established and led Interact Clubs at Roswell High School and The Cottage School. Today, Roswell Rotary actively supports 12 Interact Clubs, participates in the Youth Day Parade, honors Students and Teachers from our local schools, provides vocational expertise at Career Days, volunteers at the Dream Field, awards Scholarships to high school seniors and so much more. Many of us are actively working with the youth of this community because this investment is critical to their success in life and the overall health of Roswell—and benefits us, too!
Over the last few years Roswell’s youth have been under siege, with two teenagers murdered by a mentally disturbed youth, teen suicides, and drug overdoses and deaths. While our members have been very involved in our schools, it is clear that our youth need to be even more connected to leaders in our community. Roswell Rotarians have an incredible opportunity to connect with our youth and build trusting relationships that will allow us to empower them to dream big and change the world.
This week, Ron Clark will share with us ways to connect with youth and build these trusting relationships.
