turmoil of the 1960’s,
the first Rotaract Club was founded at the University of
North Carolina in 1968. Within a day, the Rotaract Club
of the University of La Salle was chartered in Tacubaya,
Mexico. In the next weeks, additional clubs were formed
in the United States, as well as Italy and India. In
the past thirty years, Rotaract has skyrocketed into a
global phenomenon – there are currently over 7,600
Rotaract clubs in more than 158 countries, with an estimated
membership of more than 176,000 Rotaractors.

in the following areas:
- Coordinating local service projects.
- Volunteering for various community organizations
or Rotary sponsored events.
- Promoting international awareness and friendship.
- Fostering the professional development of members.
- Building international networks among the Rotary International
- Making friends and having fun!
ABOUT ROTARY INTERNATIONAL

in 1979, Polio has been reduced by 99%. It now exists
