Rotary International

Rotary is an international association of business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, promote high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. With over 1.2 million members in over 32,000 clubs in nearly 170 countries, Rotary initiates community projects that focus on the most serious issues confronting people around the world: poverty, conflict resolution, health, hunger, illiteracy, and the eradication of polio.

What would it take to change the world? 

Rotary's 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to Service Above Self.

There's something that all Rotary club members have in common: We take action. As community volunteers, we reach out to neighbors in need. We build, support, and organize. We save lives. We work locally and globally. You'll find members volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.

Around the world and around the corner, the 1.2 million men and women of Rotary

  • Get involved in their communities

  • Connect with other professionals

  • Share their time and experience with young people

  • Support global causes, such as eradicating polio

  • Use their skills to help others

Rotary Motto  "Service above Self"

Rotary’s main objective is service in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service above Self.

Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations.  Whether you're a veteran volunteer or new to community service, we're looking for people like you!
