Rotaract is a global movement of students and young professionals ages 18 and older who are developing innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges as they exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service. From big cities to rural villages, Rotaract is changing communities and knows no limits in its outreach. Rotaractors have access to the many resources of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation. Shown here, members of the North Shore Rotary Club, one of 10 Rotaract clubs in Rotary District 5040.
