Mission


The main objective of Rotary is service -- in the community and throughout the world. Rotarians build goodwill and peace, provide humanitarian service, and encourage high ethical standards in all vocations. The Rotary motto is "Service Above Self." (From the Rotary Int'l homepage)

Background


Rotarians --men and women alike -- volunteer their efforts to improve the quality of life in their own community and beyond its borders. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are non-political, non-religious and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. Club membership represents a cross-section of local business and professional leaders.

First admitted in 1987, women are the fastest-growing segment of Rotary's membership. There are currently nearly 1,900 women club presidents. Women are also rapidly assuming regional leadership roles.

Rotarians initiate community projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as violence, drug abuse, youth, AIDS, hunger, the environment, and illiteracy.

Rotary clubs are autonomous and determine service projects based on local needs.

Rotarians work with and for youth to address challenges facing young people today. Through participation in Rotary-sponsored Interact clubs (for secondary school students), Rotaract clubs (for young adults), and Rotary Youth Leadership awards, young people worldwide learn leadership skills and the importance of community service. Rotary Youth Exchange gives high school students the opportunity to broaden their world view and build international friendships.

In large cities, often plagued by urban violence, Rotary has the community-based network to help. Rotary-sponsored projects and conferences address the root causes of violence such as drug abuse, poverty, lack of role models, and gangs. (From the Rotary Int'l homepage)
