Rotaract clubs bring together peoples ages 18 and older to exchange ideas with the leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service.
In communities worldwide, Rotary and Rotaract members work side by side to take action through service. From big cities to rural villages, Rotaract is challenging communities like yours.
As Rotaract has evolved over the years, it became clear that Rotaractors wanted more flexibility, more products and services, and more recognition from Rotary for the amazing work that they are doing in their clubs, districts, and multi-districts. After the 2019 Council on Legislation votes to officially recognize Rotaract clubs as a membership type, the president appointed the Elevate Rotaract Task Force to discuss how to update Rotaract policies to reflect this new status and create an inclusive, innovative, and flexible membership experience.
Effective 1 July 2020, the following changes to the RI Code of Policies will take effect:
  • Rotaract clubs will be able to establish a new club with or without a sponsor.
  • Rotaract clubs will be able to choose other Rotaract clubs as their sponsors.
  • Rotaract clubs will be open to all young adults at least 18 years old.
  • Rotaract policies will be moved from chapter V, “programs,” to a revised chapter II, “clubs.”
  • The Standard Rotaract Club Constitution and the Recommended Rotaract Club Bylaws will be amended to reflect these policy changes.
  • Rotary districts are encouraged to include Rotaractors in every district committee.
Rotary International has set goals for Rotaract to:
  • Increase the number of Rotaractors by 100% by 2022
  • Increase the number of Rotaractors who join Rotary clubs by 20% by 2022
  • Increase the number of reported Rotaractors to 1 million by 2029.

Rotary District 5370 is fully committed to supporting these goals and have already implemented changes across the district to further support these changes.
Rotaract in District 5370 is comprised of young professionals ages 18+ that meet regularly to exchange ideas, plan activities, do service projects, and make lasting connections. District 5370 is made up of four university-based clubs and five community-based clubs. Together, these nine clubs focus on creating positive, sustainable change both in their own communities, and internationally.
If your club might be interested in sponsoring or co-sponsoring a Rotaract Club, or is interested to learn more about the program both here and around the world, please reach out to the District Rotaract Chair, Yvone, or District Rotaract Representative (DRR), Ciorstadh, who would be happy to schedule a time to meet and present to your club.
