About Us, Why Join?, 4-Way Test, History & More
Rotary is an international humanitarian service organization of business and community leaders, and volunteers who are willing and able to support Rotary's mission. We are a global network of volunteers. Men and women, just like you, doing incredible things together to create positive change in our community and our world. We give our time and resources to help others and we have fun, too.
We believe improving people's lives leads to a better and more peaceful world. In conjunction with Rotary International, we participate in and support service projects that address critical issues. Targeted for elimination are poverty, disease, hunger, illiteracy, and pollution. We commit time, talent, experience and resources to make a positive difference.
Service to youth, especially children at risk, is a major emphasis. Working with and for tomorrow's leaders, Rotary business and community leaders sponsor service clubs for youth and young adults and offers career development and mentoring programs.
Exchange programs for high school students and adult study groups foster understanding and friendships around the world. Rotary provides educational opportunities to obtain advanced degrees as "peace scholars."
Founded in 1905, Rotary has over 1.2 million members around the world! Rotary helped develop the original United Nations charter in 1947 and presently holds a seat at the United Nations.
Rotary clubs meet weekly to discuss, adopt and plan service projects, recognize members successes and achievements, enjoy fellowship and have fun.
