ROTARACT CLUB OF SOCIAL REVOLUTION
RCSR is a Rotary‐sponsored service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30. Rotaract Clubs are either community or university based, and they're sponsored by a local Rotaract organization. This makes them true partners in service and key members of the family of Rotary. As one of Rotaract's most significant and fastest‐growing service programs, with more than 9,500 clubs in about 170 countries and geographical areas, Rotaract has become a worldwide phenomenon.
Today's young people will become tomorrow's parents, professionals, business leaders, and community leaders. With the help of programs like Rotaract, they can gain the tools and skills necessary to develop into responsible, productive members of society. Now is the time for the Rotaract club, to focus on the future challenging the new generations to test their talents, develop new skills, and confront issues they will face in their lifetime. The Rotaract program can instill in its members' life skills that can be shared with others for generations to come.
