Rotaract is a non-profit service club for students and young professionals ages 18 to 30. Rotaract clubs are either community or university based, and they're sponsored by a local Rotary club. There are more than 8,200 Rotaract clubs in about 170 countries and this is ever increasing as Rotaract has become a worldwide phenomenon.
What does Rotaract do?
Rotaract believes in the motto "Service Above Self" and is active in the communities. Members have the opportunity to help out with local organizations like soup kitchens and assisting with fundraising events at festivals. They also organize and manage their own social and service activities from Halloween parties to going to Theatre in the Park.
Typically Rotaract Clubs have general meetings every week or every other week, to plan the upcoming events, find out what the needs are within the community and internationally and keep in touch with what the club members are doing.
