Our mission is to provide human, in-kind, intellectual and financial support to help communities to assist struggling families and in reversing current trends in justice-involved youth.
Our goal is to reduce Juvenile Delinquency by 50% in 5 years(50 in 5)----Repeat in each subsequent 5 year period, and expand the Rotary FYI nation-wide.
The vision of Rotary FYI is for Rotarians to act in the role of a catalyst, to assist selected communities in significantly reducing justice-involved youth within the span of five years, repeating the effort in each subsequent five year period, and eventually expanding the initiative nation-wide via the Rotary network.
The strong moral underpinning of the Rotary FYI flows from and is directly aligned with The Objects of Rotary, The Ideal of Service, The Rotary Peace Initiative, and Rotary efforts to mentor young people, help those with special needs, and improve quality of life, and for breaking the cycles of poverty.
