Dominican Republic
Louis Sabater, a life member, from the Dominican Republic
has been recently elected to serve as a member of the Inter-
American Committee. He is our representative for the Caribbean
area and is a member of the IFSR Executive Committee.
Rotaract Clubs
A very good assistant to aid with local Scouting projects is a
Rotaract Club if one is active in your area. They have manpower,
enthusiasm and can be a bridge to serve as leaders for various pro-
jects. This is an untapped resource that we need to use. They also
make excellent prospective members for your Rotary Clubs. If
there is not a Rotaract Club in your area, talk to your Rotary Dis-
trict Governor about starting one! These are young people from 18
to 30 who have talent, enthusiasm, imagination and spirit for
worthwhile projects that can interject a new vigor in what you are
doing in your community for Rotary and Scouting.
International Youth Exchanges
Sometimes, we wonder what we
can do to aid in Inter-
national Youth Exchanges, especially if we have no children at
home. Why not ask your local Scout Council and School officials
if there are any opportunities for selecting Scouts to visit in other
parts of the World and then inquire about the programs for sending
them to another country for a week or two. Better yet, ask about
bringing a foreign Scout unit to spend a week or two in the local
Scout Camp and arrange home stays for them in cooperation with
the local council. Aid them in helping set up the program while
they are in your area. Have them visit the Scout Council service
center and meet other Scouts.
