RAIC (Rotary Adventure in Citizenship) 4162134f-c4d8-4b43-8962-101ac6062974

RAICis an intensive and fun filled week-long program to help prepare young adults for full participation as citizens of Australia.

Each year around 35 Year 11 students (the delegates) are sent by their local Rotary clubs to Canberra. They are taken out of their comfort zones into new places, set amongst new faces and asked to do new things.

For a week, RAIC puts the delegates “inside” Canberra.

Run in partnership with the Parliamentary Education Office the delegates are immersed behind the scenes in Parliament House.

They view Parliament in action, including the Budget speech and Question Time, meet their Federal member of parliament and Press Gallery journalists. Through role play, delegates participate in law-making debates and explore the functions of the Parliament.

One of the highlights is having morning tea with the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

And most importantly, they meet and make friends with young people from all over Australia. Delegates from previous years have said this is one of the highlights of the RAIC program.
