Rotaract, a division of Rotary International, is a service club for young men and women ages 18 through 30.  The name is taken from a combination of the words "Rotary" and "action".  Today there are nearly 160,000 members worldwide in close to 7000 clubs in 150 countries.  

The goals of Rotaract:

  • To develop professional and leadership skills.
  • To emphasize respect for the rights of others, based on the recognition of the worth of each individual.
  • To recognize the dignity and value of all occupations as opportunities to serve.
  • To recognize, practice and promote ethical standards as leadership qualities and vocational responsibilities.
  • To develop knowledge and understanding of the needs, problems and opportunities in the community and worldwide.
  • To provide opportunities for personal and group activities to serve the community and promote international understanding and goodwill to all people.

Every Rotaract club is a part of a district Rotaract organization, run by elected representatives with support from sponsoring Rotarians.  The district organization plans regional projects, holds club leadership training programs, and sponsors special events to strengthen the bonds among clubs.
