About the Program
Through the Rotary Student Program, young people explore career interests by meeting one on one with business professionals, from CEOs of Global Corporations to Small-business Owners, in reverse interview settings. Accompanied by Rotarians, students have the chance to ask questions, explore options, and discuss future plans that either confirm or redirect their dreams—before starting college and career.
Reaching That Dream Career
Once a student has decided to participate in the Rotary Student Program, they are well on their way to discovering more about their career dreams and the right fit for their future.
