Rotary's commitment to youth protection

Rotary International strives to create and maintain a safe environment for all youth who participate in Rotary activities. To the best of their ability, Rotarians, Rotarians’ spouse, and partners, and other volunteers must safeguard the children and young people they come into contact with and protect them from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. (2.100.1 Statement of Conduct for Working with Youth) Rotary International has a zero-tolerance policy against abuse and harassment.
