“We want everyone to see that Rotary is cool, hip and relevant”, says Rotary International Director, Jennifer Jones. She is one of 17 global directors who oversee the stewardship and governance of Rotary. Jones adds, “my job on the tour is to introduce you to the bright future of our organization and this is the first time that anything like this has ever been attempted. These four young professional Rotarians exemplify how Rotarians feels at every age – ready for service to their communities and the world.”
