WHAT IS ROTARACT?

Rotaract is a global organisation that empowers students and young professionals to create positive and lasting change in themselves, their local community and around the world.

Rotaractors help, learn, and enjoy. We help those in need, learn through professional development opportunities, and enjoy social activities.

Partnering with Rotary International, the over 70 Rotaract Clubs across Australia are part of a worldwide organisation of 250,792 individuals in 10,904 clubs covering 184 countries.

Rotaract Members share a unique passion for taking action through not only ideas but planning and execution of projects and events. Where others see problems, we see solutions.

Positive Change

Service, not just meetings

We have such precious time between work or school, and other competing activities. Our Melville City Rotaract Club is focused on less time spent in meetings and more time spent delivering service.
 
Our members bring the service ideas into Rotaract.
 
Most of our members will meet once a month on a Sunday evening to collaborate on the upcoming service. The rest of the details are sorted without much fuss. We catch up and get into the community.
 
Our community is local and global.
 
One week we may be partnering with another Rotaract Club that needs extra hands to collect food and toys for those in need or restore a nearby natural corridor. Another week a couple of our members may be overseas helping distribute disaster relief or installing water filters at a school.
 
Rotary supports us.
 
We don't have to go this alone. We have 3 local Rotary Clubs sponsoring us. They guide us and partner with us where our people want the help. We might have questions about budgets, insurance, or fundraising. They share their equipment and if we want, can advise us on suppliers and potential donors. There are lots of experienced Rotarians to support us.
 
Further, the Rotary District 9465 can help us facilitate interstate and overseas service projects.

We are starting up a new Rotaract Club within the City of Melville! Applecross Rotary would like to invite you – and others in your network – to attend the inaugural Meet and Greet Lunch and Rotaract Information Session on Saturday 21 July.

How Do I Join?

Connect. Show Up.

Come along to our next meeting or event and say hi to see if our club is the right fit for you.
 
All events are on our Facebook page and there is no cost to attend a meeting.
 
If we are volunteering instead of having a regular meeting, send us a message so we know to expect you.
 
Feel free to bring a friend as everyone is welcome. Once you have decided the club is a great fit for you (usually after a few meetings or events), you will be formally invited to join.
 
There is an annual membership fee, which is as low as possible and set by members each year to ensure we have enough funds to run the club (without using donations).
