The Rotary Club of Wahroonga has been able to fund local Youth Projects in excess of $300,000 over the past 10 years. The recent halt in our normal fundraising activities has meant we have not been able to engage with the community as we would normally expect.
 
We welcome your participation in our Fundraising efforts to continue this valuable work. Below are a range of key Youth projects we find very effective and make a lasting difference to the young people involved.
