Rotaract is a unique international service organisation for people aged 18-30, offering a wide range of activities that enable young adults to try something new, whilst having a great time and meeting others.
Rotaract is an opportunity for young men and women to enhance their personal development, address the physical and social needs of their communities and promote better relations between people worldwide through friendship and service. It has no political or religious affiliations.
There are over 170 clubs in Great Britain and Ireland, with about 3,000 Rotaractors in Great Britain and N.Ireland,and more than 6,000 in the whole world. Each club organises its own social activities, which could just be a trip down the pub, ten-pin bowling, or maybe a meal, a theatre trip, or even a holiday abroad.
Rotaractors also make a difference in their local community, including raising funds for charities, and activities such as gardening, marshalling or helping the elderly.
In many of the larger districts, joint events are held with other neighbouring clubs most weekends. This can be a theme disco, a quiz night or a dinner dance. Some national Rotaract events are also organised.
