I am a member of the Rotaract of Club River Oaks, and I have found it to be a great organization of young professionals and college students who seek to make a difference in the world.  I expect to be involved with Rotaract in Buenos Aires as well.  Find more information about Rotaract here

What is Rotaract?*

Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30. Rotaract clubs are either community or university based, and they’re sponsored by a local Rotary club. This makes them true “partners in service” and key members of the family of Rotary.

As one of Rotary’s most significant and fastest-growing service programs, with more than 7,000 clubs in about 163 countries and geographical areas, Rotaract has become a worldwide phenomenon.

How Does it Work?*

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.
