Youth to Youth:  Youth to Youth was founded in 1982 in Columbus, Ohio, as a community-based drug prevention and youth leadership program focusing primarily on middle school and high school students. The goal of its many projects is harnessing the powerful influence of peer pressure—making it a positive force that encourages young people to live free of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Our club hosted lunch for the attendees which involved setting up, serving, and cleaning up from their lunch break at Castro Valley High School.

Pickup with a Purpose:  Each year, schools within the San Ramon Valley Unified School District find themselves with hundreds of clothing items in their “lost and found.”  The DVSR Rotary collects the Lost & Found items from all interested schools.  With the help of Interact youth and scouts, we sort the clothing, toss ruined or broken items, and redistribute what’s left to charitable organizations that serve kids and families.
