Youth Service Overview

Youth Service is the newest of Rotary's Avenues of Service. Many of the grants made by Youth Service were made by Community Service in the past, but Youth Service has a broader mandate. Besides supporting worthwhile youth oriented non-profits, the club is involved with Dunn School, a nearby private day and boarding, middle and high school in three areas:
  1. Interact. Los Olivos Rotary sponsors the Interact club at Dunn. Rotarians serve as advisors to the Interacters, supporting them in some of their activities while they support us in some of our community service activities.
  2. RYLA. Every year, two to four Dunn students, frequently members of the Interact Club, are sent to the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camp conducted by District 5240 in Ojai,
  3. Guatemala. In conjunction with International Service the club sponsors a group of Dunn students who travel to Antigua, Guatemala during their winter break to help build houses for the poor through Constru Casa
The club also provides financial support for many look youth programs. Local groups are invited to submit a grant application using this form.
