Rotaract

Rotaract is an international organisation for people aged 18-30, who like to have FUN, and who want to make a difference. While having fun we try and make a difference to the local and global community. Each club is affiliated with a Rotary Club. Rotaract is a non-religious, non-political organisation.

The first Rotaract club was chartered on 13 March 1968, in North Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S.A. As at March 2005 there are 7,869 Rotaract clubs in 146 countries with an estimated 180,000 members.

Rotaractors are involved in a variety of social, professional, international and community based activities, which include:

* Guest Speakers

* Sporting challenges

* Leadership training weekends

* Organising Student Encouragement Awards

* Direct assistance within the community (eg. tree planting, working bees)

* Raising funds for the community (eg. DEBBRA Foundation, Salvation Army)

* Working at the annual Desperate and Dateless Ball as bar staff

* Weekends Away

* Restaurant Nights

* Film Nights

* Bus Tours

* Formal Balls
