Y.E.S. (Youth Engaged in Service)


The Y.E.S. (Youth Engaged in Service) program was established by the Rotary Club of Burlington in 2007 to provide unique leadership and service opportunities to 11th grade students.

Y.E.S. has been so successful that we now offer programs for students in Washington State and in British Columbia. 

Y.E.S. provides students with an opportunity to participate in an international, hands-on service project, as well as engaging students with volunteer and humanitarian service in their home communities.

Participants are required to complete a minimum of 80 hours of local community service to be able to take part in the international project.  Many participants are already very involved in school, church and community groups - which count towards their volunteer hours.

For Rotarians, sponsoring a student for Y.E.S. meets four of Rotary's Avenues of Service:  Community, Youth, International and Vocational.

Rotary recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults involved in leadership development activities, community and international service projects, and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding.
