What is Rotaract? 
Rotaract is one of Rotary's membership types for university students and young professionals young ages 18 and up who are dedicated to finding innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges while developing leadership skills and making friends from around the world. Rotaract clubs are members of Rotary International.

Rotaract clubs decide how to organize and run their own clubs, manage their funds, and plan and carry out activities and service projects that are important to their communities. Clubs that sponsor Rotaract clubs offer guidance and support, and work as partners in service.
 
Rotaractors worldwide were asked to select three words that best describe Rotaract. Here's their top answers: Humanity.  Community.  Leadership.  Compassion.  Community Development.  Friendship.  Service.  Fun.
