Palo Alto Rotary is pleased to work with and help local youth in our communities. We proudly support the following organizations through service partnerships, financial donations, and club sponsorship: 
Camp RYLA - RYLA stands for "Rotary Youth Leadership Award". Recipients of this award within our Club’s Rotary District 5170 are sponsored to attended a week long summer camp to learn about themselves and their peers to become better leaders for their sports, clubs, schools, and communities.
Girls Scout Troop Service Unit 601 - The Palo Alto Girl Scout Troop provides support and acts in an advisory role for girls and leaders, and it organizes activities throughout the year. 
Boys Scout Troop 5 - Palo Alto’s Troop 5 is a friendly, medium-sized troop with a strong outdoor program, active scouts and involved adult leaders. The three aims of Scouting are the development of character citizenship, and fitness.
Cub Scout Pack 6 - Palo Alto’s Cub Scout Pack 6 offers a large variety of fun learning activities and events enabling young adults the opportunity to grow, have fun, and learn to become responsible citizens.
Gunn High School Interact Group - Interact aims to cultivate an environment that inspires high school students to discover their own passion for service through a combination of local and international organizations, community outreach, and social responsibility.
Youth Community Services - Youth Community Service engages young people from diverse mid-peninsula communities in meaningful service-based learning. YCS students build leadership and life skills, empathy for the needs of others, and a sense of connectedness, purpose and efficacy, while making a positive difference in the lives of those around them.
