Unfortunately, RAIC 2021, has been cancelled because of COVID-19.
The Rotary Clubs of Canberra and Woden and the Parliamentary Education Office have realised we cannot deliver this unique program in the present COVID-19 environment.
An integral aspect of RAIC is the attendance of Year 11 students in Canberra for the week-long program where they are immersed behind the scenes in Parliament House.
Previous delegates have always stated that one of the highlights of the program is the fact that they meet and make friends with young people from all over Australia.
We are disappointed that we cannot provide the RAIC program for Year 11 students in 2021. But, we are hoping to deliver the RAIC program next in 2022.
As things change, we will provide updates on our Facebook page and on this website during 2021.

What makes the RAIC program great
Each year around 40 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.

Find out what it’s all about
Rotary Adventure in Citizenship (RAIC) gives you all these things, and more! RAIC is so much more than a school trip to Canberra. For the week of RAIC, you become almost an insider to what’s happening in your national capital. Things you see and do are related to what is timely and topical.
