Youth Development Service Projects
Boulder City Sunrise Rotary is in our 24th year, is 60 members strong, and as “Service Above Self” Rotarians, our weekly meetings host quality speakers, enthusiastic and involved members, and are fun filled while being informative.
We are committed to a wide range of individuals, organizations and activities in our community: from our youth to our senior citizens, people from all walks of life and for those less fortunate. Our support includes civic, education and athletics, with projects to support them all
Boulder City Sunrise Rotary sponsors Boulder City High School’s Interact Club, which is Rotary Internationals’ service club for youth ages 14 to 18. Although Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary Clubs, which provide support and guidance, Interact Clubs are self-governing and self-supporting.
The purpose of Interact is to provide opportunity for young people to work with Rotarians for fellowship and learn dedicated service and international understanding.
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)
Rotary Youth Leadership is for high-school sophomores and juniors and is a life-changing leadership training program to assist youth with leadership skills and citizenship while encouraging personal growth, integrity and principles. Rotary clubs help facilitate the curriculum.
Each year, Boulder City Sunrise Rotary sponsors youths to participate in this unique opportunity for leadership and personal development.
Teen Leadership Camp (TLC)
Teen Leadership Camp is a spin-off of RYLA with beginnings in our own District 5300 in 2000. This program is for 8th grade students using Rotarians as role models, teaching Rotary ideals and programs.
TLC helps students develop basic leadership skills and points them in the right direction to fulfill their potential.
Dan Stover Music Contest
Musically talented high school students participate each year in a Rotary District 5300 program entitled the Dan Stover Memorial Music Scholarship, and winners qualify for educational awards that enable them to further their studies at an accredited college, university, or music conservatory upon high school graduation.
