Join Leaders | Exchange Ideas | Take Action
We are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who are creating positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world. Our diverse occupations, cultures, and experiences give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish remarkable feats. Our clubs are where Rotary’s humanitarian work begins.
At club meetings, members not only catch up with friends and hear what’s happening in our communities, they also exchange ideas for creating positive change. But it doesn’t stop there. Our global network makes it possible for members to connect with business, professional, and community leaders anywhere in the world. You can experience a new culture, use your professional skills for a good cause, or simply share a hobby. If you can’t do it at home, you can surely do it at Rotary’s annual convention, where our diverse membership comes together for inspiration, education, and fun. Through our programs for emerging leaders, we’re also helping young people get the skills and experience they need to make a real difference in the lives of others. We offer both service clubs and programs to help students and young professionals strengthen their leadership skills, expand their world understanding, and make new friends.
If you’re ready to make a difference in your community and in communities around the world – Rotary is for you! You’ll find Rotary members digging wells, building schools, immunizing children, and organizing food drives. We’re building peace, empowering youth, and saving mothers and children. It’s what we’ve been doing for more than 100 years and our impact on lives is unmistakable. When we commit to a cause, like eradicating polio, we don’t stop until it’s finished. Since 1979, we’ve raised millions of dollars, immunized billions of children, and put polio eradication on the agenda of governments around the world. Today, as a member of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we are “this close” to reaching our goal. Three countries remain polio endemic, but we won’t stop until the disease is gone. We tackle the tough challenges in our communities with the same spirit of determination. From giving young people the tools they need to resolve conflict peacefully to organizing health clinics for underserved women and children, Rotary members are helping to improve lives in our own neighborhoods. With clubs in nearly every country, Rotary’s positive impact on communities around the world has never been greater.
