How are Rotaract Clubs run?

Rotaract Clubs can be community-based, or school (university or college) based. A school-based club draws its members from one school, university, or college, while a community-based club draws members from all over the community.

Members decide when, where and how long they meet to plan projects, have discussions, learn skills and have social activities.  Whether your club is based in a school or in your community, meetings can take place in person, online, or a combination of both.

Rotaract Clubs decide how to organise and run their own clubs, manage their funds, and plan and carry out activities and service projects that are important to their communities and members.  Don't worry if you have never done this before.  

Rotary clubs that ‘sponsor’ a Rotaract club offer guidance and support and work with your club as partners in service. To sponsor a club simply is a sign of commitment to guide, support and work with a new club as partners in service.

The clubs keep each other engaged, grow and learn together to better serve the community (locally and globally). Rotary members (Rotarians) can help turn Rotaractors ideas in action.
