Rotaract is a Rotary Club for those 18-30+ years old. It generally has a more casual vibe than a traditional Rotary Club. However the passion for ‘Service Above Self’ is just the same, as members enjoy working together to better their local and international community. There is also a focus on personal and professional development through speakers, workshops, mentoring, volunteering, fundraising, networking etc. Many Rotaractors are former members of Interact Clubs in local high schools.
You will find Rotaract Clubs at many colleges and universities but there are also community-based clubs such as the recently renamed and relaunched Rotaract Club of Halton. This club is growing rapidly as more young people from across Halton Region become aware of it. Please let your friends and extended family know about Halton Rotaract via https://www.haltonrotaract.com/.

The Rotary Club sponsors participation in this unique opportunity to gain a better understanding of our democratic institutions, the diversity of our country, and the privileges and responsibilities of Canadian citizenship. This is a 4-day program held annually in Ottawa in May.
