What is a Rotaract club?
Rotaract is a service club for young people ages 18-30 who partner with Rotarians to develop leadership skills and make friends from around the world. Sponsoring Rotary clubs are service partners, offer guidance, support and mentorship.
How can you join a Rotaract club?
Rotaract clubs can be based at a school or in a community. A school-based club draws its members from one school, university, or college, while a community-based club draws members from all over a community.
Club meetings can take place in person, online or a combination of both. Rotaract can be a flexible option for rural communities, traveling young professionals, and university students who are studying abroad or seeking a degree online. If you find that your community doesn’t have a Rotaract club, we invite you to organize a group of dedicated young leaders and we can help you contact a local Rotary club to get started.
After Interact: Rotaract offers Interact alumni the perfect way to build on the good you did in your community through your high school Rotary club. We want to help young people who are already connected to Rotary – family members of Rotarians, Interact, RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) alumni and former Youth Exchange students to discover new opportunities through Rotaract.
Attention Rotaract presidents/sponsoring Rotary clubs:
Rotaract club president and adviser info must be updated by June 30 each year through the Club Administration page on My Rotary on the Rotary International website. Rotaract clubs that do not report their club information for two consecutive years will be terminated.
Keeping Rotary International updated ensures contact information is listed correctly in the Worldwide Rotaract Directory. Each Rotaract club will also receive the latest news about Rotaract and the Rotaract Preconvention and have access to Rotary’s online tools and resources. Visit the Rotaract section of the Rotary International website for full information.
