Rotaract Club

What is Rotaract?

Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30. The programme was officially inaugurated in 1968 with the first Rotaract Club formed at the University of North Carolina, sponsored by the Rotary Club of North Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. Today, there are more than 7,600 Rotaract Clubs in more than 158 countries, with an estimated membership of more than 176,000 Rotaractors.

All Rotaract efforts begin at the local grassroots level and Rotaract Clubs have access to many of the resources of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation.

Rotaract gives all its members an opportunity to work together in active service projects in the community.

Why Join Rotaract?
