Rotary Adventure in Citizenship is an annual 4-day program hosted by the Rotary Club of Ottawa that brings together 200 young Canadians to gain a better understanding of Canada, the workings of our democratic institutions, and the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship. Participants are hosted by local Rotarians and the program balances elements like meeting the Speaker of the House of Commons and touring Parliament with social activities like touring the city and interacting with the other AIC participants.

Rotary Club of Halifax Harbourside, together with the Rotary Club of Halifax Northwest, will sponsor one student, age 16-18, from either Citadel and Halifax West high school, to attend AIC in Ottawa from May 1-4, 2016. Sponsorship includes payment of the $650 program fee and air travel to/from Ottawa.
The application and selection process is now complete for 2016: Raina Young, a Grade 12 student from Citadel High, was selected to attend this year's AIC program. Congratulations Raina!
