What is Rotaract?
Rotaract is a club for adults ages 18-30 that meets twice a month to exchange ideas, plan activities and projects, and socialize. While Rotary clubs serve as sponsors, Rotaract clubs decide how to organize and run their club and what projects and activities to carry out.

What if there isn’t a Rotaract club in my community or university?
Rotary Clubs, sponsor a club!
Once your club has decided to sponsor a Rotaract club, organize a Rotaract committee to oversee its formation and provide continued support. Refer to theRotaract Handbook, our complete guide to sponsoring, starting, and managing a Rotaract club, for details.
Before starting the club:
- Determine the need for a Rotaract club in your community
- Identify potential club members
- Organize a meeting for potential members to learn more about Rotaract
- Assign a Rotarian adviser to serve as the liaison for the Rotary and Rotaract clubs
- If the Rotaract club is university based, work with the faculty adviser, who will serve as a liaison between the sponsor Rotary club and university administration
By serving as mentors and organizing joint service projects, your club will experience the benefits of working alongside these young leaders. Your club’s continued involvement will also strengthen the Rotaract club. Stay connected with the next generation of Rotary leaders by:
- Working together on a service project or signature activity
- Recognizing their achievements at a special club or district program
- Asking them to share successful fundraising projects with your club
- Hosting discussion forums to exchange ideas about global citizenship, club diversity, and innovative service projects
- Telling them about activities and programs available to them through Rotary
- Inviting them to district conferences to share their club activities and network with Rotarians
