Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30. Our Rotary club supports and sponsors the Rotaract Club of Palatine, which is community based (some Rotaract clubs are affiliated with colleges or universities). As one of Rotary’s most significant and fastest-growing service programs, with more than 8,400 clubs in about 170 countries and geographical areas, Rotaract has become a worldwide phenomenon.

How does it work?

Club members meet once a month for fellowship and service effort planning.

All Rotaract efforts begin at the local, grassroots level, with members addressing their communities’ physical and social needs while promoting international understanding and peace through a framework of friendship and service. Many service efforts are matched by the Rotary Club of Palatine.

What are some other opportunities available to Rotaractors?

Rotaractors may also:

        •Work together with Interact clubs or mentor Interactors
        •Participate in Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
        •Become Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholars or Group Study Exchange team members
        •Seek membership in their local Rotary club after their Rotaract membership ends.
