The principal focus of the Rotary Club of Sault Ste. Marie North is youth education and development. Our club supports the following local initiatives:
- Each Fall we hold a Youth Leadership Awareness Conference and invite over 50 high school students from each of the high schools in the Algoma region to participate in a hands on and interactive learning environment. The event takes place on a weekend from Thursday night to Sunday at noon in a remote venue. It embraces sports and motivational activities to help youth develop leadership skills to take back to their respective schools.
- Annually we support Send a Kid to Camp under the auspices of Big Brothers and Big Sisters to meet specific children's needs.
- Our Academic Excellence Program recognizes the top 20 percent of all grade eight students by a newspaper ad placed in their honor in the Sault Star. A certificate of academic achievement is presented to the top 10 percent and to the most improved student in each class. High school valedictorians are acknowledged with a Sault Star ad and a luncheon in their honor. At the College level, our club supports the annual Jack Code Memorial Bursary to a Sault College Student.
- In recognition of Rotary International's 100th anniversary in 2005, Sault Rotary and Sault Rotary North Clubs have jointly contributed to the installation of additional playground equipment which is handicap accessible. .
