What is RotarAct?
RotarAct stands for “Rotary in Action,” and is a service club for 18-30 year olds sponsored by Rotary International. The goal of RotarAct clubs is to give young people the opportunity to serve their communities and world through grassroots, local initiatives, and to promote international understanding and goodwill through fellowship and service. For more information, visit RotarAct on the Rotary International Website.
What is Rotary?
Rotary is an international service organization with presence in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Rotarians provide humanitarian service to world, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and seek to promote peace and international understanding. One thing that sets Rotary apart from other service organizations is that it is non-partisan, non-political and non-religious. The openness of Rotary has opened international doors and fostered friendships and good works that would have otherwise been nearly impossible.To learn more about the history of Rotary and what Rotary has done around the world, visit www.rotary.org.

The Family of Rotary
Rotary is not just limited to Rotary clubs and RotarAct clubs, but extends into the high schools with InterAct (“International Action”) and even middle schools with EarlyAct. Rotary youth involvement includes RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards), a peer-led leadership conference for high school students, mentorship programs with local Rotarians and literacy programs worldwide. Rotary has a well-known youth exchange program, and educational scholarships for students and teachers who want to study abroad while serving as ambassadors of goodwill.
People of all ages, races, genders and backgrounds are part of the family of Rotary, working together to make this world a better place.
