  • General

    Rotaract is an international program for young adults who want to make a difference. We welcome all interested individuals in contributing to their community. Rotaract was founded in 1968 by Rotary International, an association of clubs made up of service-minded business and professional leaders.


    Today, there are more than 7,300 Rotary club-sponsored Rotaract clubs with some 170,000 members known as "Rotaractors" in over 150 countries, either community or university based. Rotaract clubs enable Rotaractors to grow personally and professionally, address community needs, and promote international understanding through friendship and service.


    Rotaract clubs hold meetings, usually every two weeks, which feature speakers, discussions, and visits to other clubs. Rotaractors also get together for service projects, social activities, and leadership workshops. Beyond the club level, Rotaractors can take advantage of district conferences, projects, and training seminars and participate in an international meeting prior to the annual Rotary International Convention.
