Wednesdays at Noon at Claim Jumper in Temecula

June 6th Program - Million Kids

Our club heard a powerful message on June 4th from Opal Singleton, President and CEO of Million Kids -- an organization dedicated to the prevention of child trafficking. Opal meets with business executives, city and county officials, community action groups and concerned individuals to explore ways that they can strengthen the fight against trafficking in their community. From exploring safe haven for a teenage victim who has been exploited through prostitution to working with corporations that employee thousands of laborers, Opal uses her background and experience to find creative solutions to stop trafficking.


PRYDE Club Visit

Seventeen local students visited our Temecula Rotary Club May 28th to share their experience with PRYDE - a Rotary youth leadership camp for 7th graders held last month in Crestline. We sponsored these students to attend the camp, which features team-building activities and motivational speakers who focus on acceptance of others, confidence-building, leadership, and "Service Above Self."

Rotary Youth Exchange

Making a world of difference

As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you’ll spend up to a year living with a few host families and attending school in a different country. (CLICK IMAGES FOR ENLARGED VIEW)

Whether you participate in Rotary’s long-term or short-term Youth Exchange programs, you’ll learn a new way of living, a great deal about yourself, and maybe even a new language. You’ll also be an ambassador, teaching people you meet about your country, culture, and ideas. You can help bring the world closer – and make some good friends in the process.

More than 8,000 young people each year have experiences like these through Rotary Youth Exchange. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime. Are you ready for it?

How it works

Rotary Youth Exchange is open to young people ages 15-25 worldwide.

Rotary Supports Our Military

Rotary has a long history of supporting our military. The Rotary Club of Temecula has picked up on that tradition and created The Military Family Support Project. Our project is simple in its very own nature. Listen to the issues facing our local Military Personnel, and their families, and apply the necessary resources that are needed to resolve the issue.

Contact Bruce Cripe for more information or to volunteer.


Rotary Avenues of Service

Rotary’s commitment to Service Above Self is channeled through five Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of Rotary.

New Generations Service

New Generations Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities such as RYLA, Rotaract and Interact club service projects, and creating international understanding with Rotary Youth Exchange.

Vocational Service

Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations, and they inspire others in the process.

Community Service

Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.

International Service

International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the world and to promote world understanding and peace. It includes everything from contributing to PolioPlus to helping Rotary Youth Exchange students adjust to their host countries.

Club Service

Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs.
