Rotaract was created by RI in 1968. The new organisation was designed to promote responsible citizenship and leadership potential in young men and women between the ages of 18 and 30. The first Club was chartered in Charlotte, North Carolina.
What is Rotaract?
Rotaract is an opportunity for young people to be part of a fun, dynamic and unique, international organisation. It offers a wide range of activities for people who want to join with others to make a difference to the community both at home and abroad, and to have a lot of fun doing it! It also offers opportunities for personal development and to network with people from a wide range of backgrounds and careers.
Rotaractors are the Rotarians of the future and are the obvious follow on from the tremendous amount of interaction that Rotary Clubs have with schools and young people under 18.
Rotaract is a contraction of the phrase “Rotary in action and their work is built around the motto “Fellowship Through Service”.
