Rotaract is an international organisation for people aged 18-30, who like to have FUN, and who want to make a difference. While having fun we try and make a positive difference to the local and global community. Each club is affiliated with a Rotary Club. Rotaract is a non-religious, non-political organisation.

The first Rotaract club was chartered on 13 March 1968, in North Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S.A. There are currently 9,100 Rotaract clubs in 170 countries with an 210,000 members. That's one Rotaract for every four rotary clubs and one Rotaractor for every six Rotarians - what a force to be reckoned with.

Like Rotarians the Rotaract clubs choose what they want to do, what they want to achieve and how they go about achieving it. Rotaractors are involved in a variety of social, professional, international and community based activities, which include:
* Guest Speakers            
* Sporting challenges
* Leadership training weekends            
* Organising Student Encouragement Awards
* Direct assistance within the community (eg. tree planting, working bees, roadside clean-up)            
* Raising funds for the community (eg. Salvation Army, Dubbo Rescue Squad)
* Raising funds for international projects (eg. Arise and Shine, Uganda) 
* Weekends Away
* Restaurant Nights           
* Film Nights
* Bus Tours            
* Charity Balls
* Antiques and Collectable Fairs
* Assistance with other local Rotary sponsored events (eg. Christmas Fair, Science and Engineering Challenge).

The Rotaract in Australia website will give you further information. Also, the Rotary International website has comprehensive information about Rotaract.
