There’s something that all Rotary club members have in common: We take action. As community volunteers, we reach out to neighbors in need. We build, support, and organize. We change lives through service above self. We work locally and globally.
Around the world and around the corner, the 1.2 million women and men of Rotary:

  • Get involved in their communities through service and action, using their skills to help others
  • Connect with other professionals and promote vocational development
  • Share their time and experience with young people, including through international exchange programs
  • Support global causes, such as eradicating polio, providing access to clean water, promoting education and literacy, and supporting efforts toward peace and conflict resolution
  • Partner with other groups and organizations with shared interests in making a difference
