Rotaract clubs do a variety of activities, from service projects to professional development to leadership development to fellowships. Events are organized and catered to the membership of the club, so it is not necessarily the case that one club does the exact same events as the other.

Leadership Development

A club’s leadership development activities aim not only to make members more effective leaders in their personal lives, but also to teach them how to develop and sustain strong clubs with relevant projects. Important topics to address in training club leaders include: Improving public speaking skills

  • Developing techniques for marketing the Rotaract program to potential members
  • Building consensus among members
  • Delegating project responsibilities and ensuring necessary follow-up
  • Identifying channels for project publicity and promotion
  • Finding financial resources for strengthening club development
  • Assessing project success

Fellowships

No club is complete without a social and fun aspect. Fellowships serve to bring Rotaractors closer to one another through social and informal activities. These activities should be designed to cater to the membership to bring higher turnout. Ideas of fellowships include, but are not limited to:

  • Meals at restaurants
  • Theme parks
  • Board game nights
  • Sports games (playing and/or watching)
  • Special community events

Professional Development

Professional development helps members to understand the work environment and business opportunities within their community. Each Rotaract club should provide professional development opportunities to its members through activities such as:

  • Professional and vocational forums
  • Business technology updates
  • Management and marketing seminars
  • Conferences on business and professional ethics
  • Presentations on finance and credit options for business start-up

In addition, an advantage of being in a Rotaract club is having a network of Rotarians to communicate with and learn from. By working alongside Rotarians in Rotaract-Rotary projects, Rotaractors can become better acquainted with their sponsoring Rotarians. Some examples of Rotaract-Rotary professional development activities are:

  • Mentorship programs
  • Networking mixers
  • Rotarians as guest speakers

Service Projects

Running under Rotary's motto of "Service Above Self", Rotaract clubs strive to participate in as much service as they can. These service projects include local community service (i.e., adopting an elementary school, beach and park clean-ups, etc.) as well as international service (i.e., water purification, AIDS prevention, hunger, illiteracy, etc.). Each Rotaract club is required to complete at least two major service projects annually, one to serve the community and the other to promote international understanding. Each should involve all or most of the members of the club.
