Each year Rotary clubs can participate in a number of Youth Programs designed to enhance young lives. Below is a selection of programs that we hope young people on the Coffs Coast and within our Rotary District might want to be involved in:
- RYME - Rotary Youth Marine Experience

- DOROTHEA MACKELLAR MEMORIAL POETRY COMPETITION
The Dorothea MacKellar Memorial Poetry Competition recognises Mackellar's contribution to Australian literature. The aim of the competition is to capture the imagination of every student in Australia, inspiring him or her with a passion for poetry.
- MODEL UNITED NATIONS ASSEMBLY (MUNA)
An assembly, which simulates the workings of the United Nations The aim of MUNA is to build bridges of goodwill for world peace and understanding in the minds of youth as they research, debate and speak to a wide range of contemporary world issues.
- NATIONAL YOUTH SCIENCE FORUM (NYSF)
The promotion, selection and briefing of talented Year 11 students from the district to attend the two-week national science program

- ROTARY YOUTH LEADERSHIP AWARD (RYLA)
A one-week residential seminar for young people aged between 18 and 24 years. Awardees study and discuss a wide and balanced range of topics to develop leadership, good citizenship, self- confidence, dignity and self-respect.
- YOUTH EXCHANGE PROGRAM (YEP) - LONG TERM
As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you'll spend a year living with host families and attending school in a country other than your own. You'll learn a new way of living, maybe even a new language, and a great deal about yourself.
