Bloomsburg Rotary Student of the Month:

A program where we honor a local high school student each month during the school year who is excelling in academics and community service.

The Interact Club of Columbia County:

Is comprised of young people from Bloomsburg High School who want to make a difference in the community. Interact clubs perform at least two projects a year, with one serving the community and the other furthering international understanding. Along the way, Interactors develop their leadership skills and initiative while meeting new friends.

The Bloomsburg Rotaract Club:

Based at Bloomsburg University, provides an opportunity for young adults to enhance the knowledge and skills that will assist them in personal development, to address the physical and social needs of the community, and to promote better relations between all people through a framework of friendship and service.

International Student Exchange:

Rotary’s Youth Exchange program is open to young men & women, generally between the ages of 15-19, children of both Rotarians and non-Rotarians.

Our club sponsors two types of exchanges:
A long-term exchange of an academic year’s duration, during which the student lives with more than one family and attends school in the host country. The short-term exchange is usually several weeks during the school summer recess.

Our club has sponsored students to and from more than 20 countries.
