Anstruther Rotarians seek to raise awareness of the rich opportunities offered to promote community service, work towards greater international understanding, identify and develop the leaders of tomorrow and recognise and celebrate the achievements of young people.
Throughout the world, Rotary offers many avenues including 'Interact clubs', 'Youth Exchange', 'Ambassadorial Scholarships', 'Rotary youth Leadership Awards' and 'Euroscola'
All aimed to enable young people of all ages to enjoy the challenges offered and to develop strong bonds of friendship with other young people.
To help articulate and realise hopes, dreams and expectations.
