Youth Protection

 Mission Statement

District 5100 is committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for all participants in Rotary activities. It is the duty of all Rotarians, Rotarians’ spouses, partners, and other volunteers to safeguard to the best of their ability the welfare of and to prevent the physical, sexual, or emotional abuse of children and young people with whom they come into contact.

  • INTEGRITY: We are committed to honest, respectful, ethical relations with our participants, citizens, and fellow business partners and customers.
  • RESPECT: We believe in a healthy volunteer environment based on teamwork, encouragement, trust, concern and honest and responsible communication among all Rotarians, Volunteers and Youth.
