Wanted: Leaders Under 35 Years Old

Wanted: Leaders for Rotary Summit in Seoul

The Rotary Club of Seoul is looking for young leaders from around the globe to participate in a Youth Leadership Summit in Seoul, Korea.

Are you 18 to 35 years old?

What projects have you managed in your community? 

— Or, what projects would you like to start?

The Rotary understands that younger generations of leaders can provide innovative insights into what our local and global communities need. Rotarians are looking to the Young Leaders Summit for service ideas. The Rotary also wants to share their service experience and grow the emerging leaders in our local and global societies.

The Youth Leadership Summit runs in complement with the Rotary International Convention. The convention will be held 28 May 2016 to 1 June 2016.


Scholarships for Travel and Accommodation

The Rotary Club of Seoul has setup a scholarship program to bring multiple leaders to Seoul for the leadership summit and Rotary Intentional Convention. The Rotarians understand that many of our busiest young leaders juggle school, career or family with their service. The Rotary Club of Seoul will provide for travel, accommodation and meals for the 1 week event in Seoul for several scholars.
