About Rotaract


Join the global movement of young leaders who are developing innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. Rotaract clubs bring together people ages 18-30 to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service. In communities worldwide, Rotary and Rotaract members work side by side to take action through service. From big cities to rural villages, Rotaract is changing communities like yours.

What’s involved?
Rotaract clubs decide how to organize and run their club, manage their own funds, and plan and carry out activities and service projects aligned with causes that are important to your community. Rotary club sponsors offer guidance and support and work with your club as partners in service.

                  World Rotaract Week
                  Rotaract district and multidistrict events
                  The Interota conference
                  Rotary Day at the United Nations
                  Global Youth Service Day
 
How do I join?
Check with your university or contact a local Rotary club to find out if there’s a Rotaract club in your area. Contact the Rotaract club to find out how you can join its next meeting, service project, or social event.

Can I start a Rotaract club?
Yes. If your university or community doesn’t already have a Rotaract club, you can start one. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • A sponsor Rotary club to provide support and partnership
  • A faculty or sponsor club adviser to guide and mentor you
  • People ages 18-30 from your school or community who are interested in joining the club
  • Leaders to organize your club, find other members, and plan successful projects
 
Can my Rotary club sponsor a Rotaract club?
Help young adults in your community develop leadership skills, build lasting friendships, and create positive change through Rotaract. Not only will Rotaract make a difference in their lives, it will also energize and inspire your Rotary club and connect you with enthusiastic and capable partners in service.
 
What are the benefits?
  • Connect with leaders in your community and around the world to:
  • Take action locally and internationally to create sustainable change
  • Expand your professional network and exchange ideas with proven leaders
  • Develop your professional skills through leadership training
  • Save money on travel, hotels, and supplies with Rotary’s member benefits program, Rotary Global Rewards
  • Have fun and make new friends from around the world
  • Connect with the global community of Rotaract at the annual Rotary International Convention and Rotaract Preconvention

  
Twin clubs
Connect with a Rotaract club in another country by developing a twin club relationship. Not only will it expand your knowledge of another country and its cultures, you’ll also increase your club’s global impact.
 
Rotarian Action Groups
Connect with Rotaract and Rotary members and their families who are experts in a particular field by joining a Rotarian Action Group. Group members share their expertise by collaborating with clubs and districts on service projects.  
 
Rotary Fellowships
Share your hobby or vocation with fellow club members, their spouses, and Rotary members. Some Rotary Fellowships are purely social, and others use their common interests and skills to carry out service projects.
 
District connections  
Your district offers a variety of ways to stay up-to-date on what’s happening in your area. You can also contact Rotaract clubs outside your district using the Worldwide Rotaract Directory.
 
Multidistrict information organizations
Rotaract multidistrict information organizations help connect Rotaract clubs across several Rotary districts. Working within a country or region, these organizations bring members together to exchange ideas, share information, and meet other young leaders. 
   
Rotaract clubs worldwide are using their energy, experience, and education to address issues that are important to them.
