The Uxbridge Rotary Youth and Vocational Committee is a very active committee with many programs benefiting youth as follows:

Canadian Tire Jumpstart

Rotary supports the local Canadian Tire Jumpstart program each year, which provides funding for local youth to participate in sports and other activities in the community.

Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA)

We fund the cost of sending a student with leadership qualities to a one-week program at Loyalist College, Belleville each year. RYLA students learn their own strengths and abilities and further their leadership qualities.

Partners in Service

We join forces with other community organization to assist in funding medical assistance for disabled youth.

Adventure in Citizenship

Every year an interested student is given the opportunity to go to Ottawa to first-hand experience the workings of government.

Uxbridge Youth Centre

Rotary supports the local Youth Centre with donations of up to $5,000 to assist with a variety of programs that we feel are much needed in our community.

Literacy Programs

In 2009 Uxbridge Rotary implemented a literacy program by purchasing interactive software for Computer Aided Learning Systems (CALS), a Library based program that helps students raise their reading levels before entering high school.

Uxbridge Music Scholarship

We provide a $500.00 scholarship for a local student pursuing music at the post-secondary level.

Precious Minds

We are ongoing supporters of Precious Minds, a local initiative assisting challenged children, providing funds to maintain their library.

Uxbridge Secondary School Commencement Award

We provide $1000.00 for an annual Community Service Award to be given to a worthy student.
