Camp Enterprise

Camp Enterprise is an intensive three-day seminar/camp to explore fundamental challenges, opportunities and obligations of the free enterprise system. It brings together about 100 of the Tulsa area’s outstanding high school juniors. It is an opportunity for you to invest in our future potential leaders in the free enterprise system.

 


Four Way Speech Competition

The Youth Activities committee coordinates the Club’s youth service activities. Two specific projects include conducting the Rotary Club of Tulsa’s “Four-Way Test” Speech Contest which offers an opportunity for students to compete at the local level. The club’s winner then vies for an opportunity to compete at the district level. Additionally, the Committee selects students to participate in the District’s Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) camp.

 


Interact

Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 14 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.

Club membership varies greatly. Clubs can be single gender or mixed, large or small. They can draw from the student body of a single school or from two or more schools in the same community.

Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of:

  • Developing leadership skills and personal integrity
  • Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
  • Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
  • Advancing international understanding and goodwill

As one of the most significant and fastest-growing programs of Rotary service, with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon. Almost 200,000 young people are involved in Interact.

 


Partners in Education

Celia Clinton Elementary has seen marked improvement in students’ test scores through the direct efforts of Rotarians to provide mentoring, clothing, food, financial support, and countless volunteer hours. We also provide support to Preschool Childhood Centers in the neighborhood of Celia Clinton. Whether you pop popcorn for a rewards part, strengthen reading skills by being a Reading Partner good listener or present third-graders with their very own, personalized dictionaries, you will “receive more than you give” by volunteering at our Partners-In-Education school.

RYLA

54c03316e61443_ryla logoThe RYLA project began in Australia in 1959, when young people throughout the state of Queensland were selected to meet with Princess Alexandra, the young cousin of Queen Elizabeth II. The Rotarians of Brisbane, who hosted the participants, were impressed with the quality of the young people and decided to bring youth leaders together each year for a week of social, cultural and educational activities.

Each year, thousands of young people are selected to attend Rotary-sponsored leadership camps or seminars held in districts throughout the world.

In an informal atmosphere, groups of outstanding young people ages 14 to 30 spend several days in a challenging program of leadership training, discussions, inspirational addresses and social activities designed to enhance personal development, leadership skills and good citizenship.

The official name of this activity is the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA).

 

Stay Connected

As we get closer to Thanksgiving, we want to continue to show our gratitude to the Rotarians that inspire us. Today's "Be the Inspiration" is none other than James Vierheller, better known as "Mr. Ed."

Mr. Ed is called upon at weekly Rotary luncheons to "auction" items and raise funds for our foundation, and he always accepts his duty and gets top dollar. He is an inspiration to all for this ethical character, dedication, high standards, and willingness to help others. We are most fortunate to have Mr. Ed in our club, but we sure aren't the only ones. Just ask anyone in the City of Catoosa about his inherited "Iris Garden."

Thank you Mr. Ed for being you! You are our inspiration!
