The Rotary Club of Corpus Christi is committed to servicing the youth in our community. Our youth service initiatives are designed to honor, train, support and motivate our youth.
The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive 3 day leadership training program hosted by our club for Rotary District 5930 which includes 56 Rotary Clubs from Laredo to Brownsville, Victoria and the Coast Bend. With over 180 high school students participating, it is one of the largest youth service projects in all of South Texas. Over 40 Rotarians are involved in coordinating this leadership event.
We are also proud to sponsor the 4-Way Test competition. This gives students the opportunity to win scholarships by writing a speech that demonstrates how the 4-Way Test applies to their lives.
Our club is proud to be the sponsor of the Collegiate High School Interact Club. They will develop their own service projects and may offer support to the Rotary Club of Corpus Christi with specific projects. We look forward to watching these youths develop into future Rotarians.
Rotarian and Board of Director, Luciano Salazar is coordinating our club youth service. If you have any ideas or would like to become a member of Luciano’s committee, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
