Make a Difference by volunteering at Houston-area rotary & Rotaract projects

Rotary brings together a global network of volunteers who dedicate their time and talent to tackle the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. We use our knowledge of local issues to identify areas of need, then apply our expertise and diverse perspectives to solve the problem. Our Rotary members are most likely at work in your community right now feeding the hungry, tutoring children, helping our veterans, maintaining parks, and more.
