Rotary International is a national partner of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA). The organization recognizes Scouting's crucial role in nurturing shared values among young people worldwide. Rotarians are known for their leadership, character, and selfless service. They often serve as mentors within Scouting units that Rotary Clubs charter or sponsor. Rotary Clubs work hand in hand with Scouting to mentor young people, foster future leaders, and promote Rotary's ideals through community service.
