Through ROTARACT, you will meet and help people from across the street and around the world. You will make a difference through service.

Activities

ROTARACT clubs hold regular meetings every two weeks featuring interesting speakers and discussion. Club members also work together on service projects and organize training workshops. They often visit other Rotary Clubs, take part in District-wide training opportunities, and attend annual conferences and conventions.

Service

Each club organizes at least one local service project and one international service project every year. Members address physical and social needs within the community while promoting international understanding and peace through a framework of friendship and service. ROTARACT Clubs often arrange for travel opportunities to visit project sites – you never know where your club's service endeavours will take you!

Fun Place To Be

Don't be fooled. Rotaractors do a lot of amazing work, but these energetic youth are all about fun and fellowship, too. Social functions are organized throughout the year and each meeting includes lots of laughs – planned or otherwise.
