Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
Leadership Program
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards is a leadership program coordinated by Rotary Clubs around the globe. Each year, thousands of young people participate in this program. Young people ages 13–30 are sponsored by Rotary Clubs to attend the event run by the club's district committee. Participants are chosen for their leadership potential. Rotary Clubs and the Rotary District cover all expenses for the participants. The format of the event vary from district to district, but commonly take the form of a seminar, camp, or workshop to discuss leadership skills and to learn those skills through practice. Rotary clubs and districts select participants and facilitate the event's curriculum.

Indoor Ride to End Polio Part of National Rotary Effort!
Rotary Club of Tucson Indoor Ride to End Polio was part of National Rotary Effort!

Our Club was one of 15 Rotary Clubs/District to sponsor a Ride to End Polio this fall.  Participating Rotary Clubs were from: Canada (D5360 - 14 Rotary Clubs), Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and eight individual Rotary Club teams from our own D5500.  The number of riders for each team ranged in size from one individual rider to 23 riders.  Individual riders came from smaller clubs where club members could make donations in their rider's name and the club, in their own way, had a fundraising event for Polio Plus.  The total funds raised were $72,673, which with the Gates Match is $216,819. Several Indoor Teams have plans to hold their Rides in April when El Tour de Tucson has been rescheduled.  Look for an article about these upcoming Indoor Ride to End Polio Teams in the April issue of The Rotarian Magazine.
Shelter Box ~ 2020 Year in Review
The global pandemic has made the past year difficult, particularly for disaster affected families around the world who have lost their homes and are unable to socially distance.
Despite the challenges posed by coronavirus, ShelterBox served 200,000 people (that's 40,000 families!) across 13 countries with emergency shelter and life-saving aid and hygiene supplies. 
Without you, none of this would be possible.
Your support is vital in helping families recover. Not only have you provided the tools to rebuild, you have also given hope. 
Thank you for standing with us in a time when having a place to call home is more important than ever.
200,000 PEOPLE
supported with emergency shelter aid and other essential household items.
deployed to including Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Honduras, India, Nigeria, Paraguay, Philippines, Somaliland, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, and Vanuatu.
can rebuild their homes and maintain good health with custom shelter and hygiene supplies.
34-year-old Nongoma and her seven children are just one of the thousands of families who fled the violence in Burkina Faso. Here she is in front of her ShelterBox tent that will serve as her home while she figures out her next steps, providing a safe environment for her children and enabling them to cope with the challenge of displacement.
