International Service

Community Service is one of the main tenets of Rotary. For nearly 90 years, the Rotary Club of Northfield has worked to improve the Northfield area through cash donations and projects of all sizes.

Rotary provides countless opportunities for clubs across the globe to work with each other. These are some of the areas in which the Rotary Club of Northfield has participated:

Youth Exchange

Our club has had over 50 incoming YE students since 1969 and over 60 outbound students.

Group Study Exchange

We have hosted GSE teams for multi-day and one day visits as well as many farewell evenings for departing GSE teams.

Ambassadorial/Peace Scholars

Over the years our club has nominated 8 students who went on to win ambassadorial scholarships in Germany, France, Norway, Switzerland, Scotland, Denmark and Mexico.

Matching Club Project

Since 2003, we have led two National Immunization Day teams to Togo, Ghana, Benin and Burkina Faso and have been the lead sponsorsing club for matching grants to Africa that total over $100,000 as well as leading efforts that raised over $25,000 for PolioPlus.
