The Council on Legislation a
pproved changing the name of Rotary’s Fifth 
Avenue of Service, currently called “New Generations Service,” to “Youth Service.” The 2010 Council approved this Avenue of Service for youth, which joined the already established Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, and International Service. The name “New Generations” was meant to reflect the need to build the next generation of Rotarians, but proponents of the name change argued Wednesday that the word “youth” is more universally understood, both inside and outside Rotary, and clarifies the fact that these programs encourage Rotarians to empower youth.
