The most powerful force in the promotion of the ideals of peace and service is our development of our Youth.
 
Rotarians, their families,and non-Rotarian volunteers engaged in Rotary youth programs are expected to use their best efforts to safeguard the welfare of and prevent the physical, sexual or emotional abuse or harassment of every student with whom they come into contact.
 
Rotary International is committed to protecting the safety and well being of Youth and will not tolerate their abuse or harassment. All allegations of abuse or harassment will be taken seriously and must be handled according to our published guidelines (see download files).
 
The safety and well-being of students should always be the first priority.
