Rotaract = Rotary + Action
Rotaract is a service club for young people ages 18 to 30 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 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. Rotary clubs that sponsor Rotaract clubs offer guidance and support and work with Rotaractors as partners in service.
Rotaract is often described as being like “Rotary, but with better parties”. Most clubs hold two meetings per month, with one as a business meeting and the other as a social event. The club also meets as needed for their service projects and events.
Rotaract clubs engage in local and international service, both independently and working with local Rotary clubs. Members address their communities physical and social needs while promoting international understanding and peace through a framework of friendship and service.
