Interested in scuba diving or marathon running? Want to use your skills as a doctor or environmentalist to make a difference? Share your hobby or vocation with fellow club members, their spouses, and Rotary members. Some Rotary Fellowships are purely social, and others use their common interests and skills to carry out service projects.
Your district offers a variety of ways to stay up-to-date on what’s happening in your area. You can also contact Rotaract clubs outside your district using the Worldwide Rotaract Directory. Your club or district Rotaract leaders can access the directory through the Rotaract Workgroup.
