What is a Rotaract Club?
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 sponsored by a local Rotary club. This makes them true "partners in service" and key members of the family of Rotary.
The Rotaract Club of Salt Lake is a group of young professionals and students committed to personal, professional and community development. Rotaract fosters leadership and responsibility, encourages high ethical standards, and promotes international understanding and peace.
Our Rotaractors are working closely with the refugee community in Salt Lake. They partner with the Hser Ner Moo Center -- a local welcoming center for people with refugee status -- and support their afterschool programs for children and teenagers. They also meet with local residents to collaborate on community-wide projects, such as development of the Pathways Garden.
Additionally, with the mentorship and support of the Rotarians, Rotaractors can attend monthly professional development and leadership workshops. Workshops cover topics such as body language and communication, determining your professional goals and career, landing the job you want, leadership and management, entrepreneurship, financial literacy and more.
They traveled to Guatamala in May 2011 for a humanitarian trip.
