Offered to area high school juniors and seniors as part of Rotary's commitment to youth service, the Brattleboro Rotary Club's Student Rotarian Program is designed to give high school students the opportunity to experience Rotary firsthand, and to give Rotarians the opportunity to relate to high school students at a peer level.

The program was launched in January 1996 and has involved more than 200 participants as Student Rotarians.

Each Student Rotarian will attend 10 luncheon Rotary meetings throughout the school year and will participate in Rotary community service projects. The exception is the first meeting of the semester, which is attended by all Student Rotarian participants to provide an opportunity for Rotary members to get acquainted with and orient the students.

Student Rotarians are called upon at each meeting to give a brief report about what is happening at their respective schools, including academics, concerts, sports, school activities, personal activities, or any other interesting information. They also benefit from the exposure to a different speaker at each meeting on topics of local interest.

Participation is offered every year to studentsfrom local high schools, including Brattleboro Union High School, the Windham Regional Career Center, the Austine School, Hinsdale High School, and Leland and Gray Union High School.

Students are selected for the program by their schools using whatever means each school's administration deems appropriate. There are no academic or honors prerequisites. The only requirement on the part of the Brattleboro Rotary Club is that each student genuinely wants to participate in the program.
