Now more than ever Rotarians across the world are helping improve people's lives by volunteering their time, expertise and also raising money to support local charities and organisations with their projects.
Joining Rotary opens up a world of opportunities and gives you the chance to make a difference in your local community and across the world. It's not all hard work though and our members have a lot of fun and build new friendship's and business connections while developing new skills.
Across Essex and Hertfordshire Rotarians make a difference in their local communities and internationally. Joining Rotary provides a safe environment in which to volunteer whilst meeting new people and giving something back to those less fortunate than us.
Rotary’s latest area of focus on the environment will ensure we leave the world a better place for those who follow behind. Rotary is more flexible than ever before.
With a variety of ways to get involved with your local club, there is bound to be an opportunity to suit you, your lifestyle and your commitments.
Clubs are flexible in their meeting times and locations, with multiple clubs often operating in a certain area, giving you options to suit you and your commitments. As well as face-to-face meetings, a number of clubs operate with online meetings, offering greater flexibility for those who are frequently on the go, or those who lead a particularly busy lifestyle, but still want to give back to the community.
While clubs meet at different times, in different places and in different ways, the thing they all have in common is the fact they come together for hands on projects, volunteering and community activities to improve the lives of others.
Membership for Young People Rotary is open to anyone over the age of 18, but we have other opportunities to get involved with the Rotary family.
RotaKids and Interact clubs are the perfect introduction to volunteering for young people aged 7-11 and 12-18.
For young adults aged 18-30, there is also Rotaract, another vibrant branch of the Rotary family. Friend of Rotary and Project Volunteering If you’re not quite ready to commit, a number of clubs offer ‘Friend of Rotary’ programmes or volunteering options on specific club projects. This gives you the opportunity to get involved with Rotary to decide whether it is right for you.
We’ll ask you a few questions to understand what you’re looking for, before connecting you with members in your area, where you’ll have chance to try a few clubs to find your best fit.
