Rotaract Club at the United Nations
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 they’re sponsored by a local Rotary club. This makes them true "partners in service" and key members of the family of Rotary. As one of Rotary’s most significant and fastest-growing service programs, with more than 7,000 clubs in about 163 countries and geographical areas, Rotaract has become a worldwide phenomenon. How Does It Work? All Rotaract efforts begin at the local, grassroots level, with members addressing their communities’ physical and social needs while promoting international understanding and peace through a framework of friendship and service. About Us Rotaract Club at the United Nations was chartered in November 1995 as the first Rotaract club of District 7230. We are a community based club sponsored by the Rotary Club of New York. Meetings are held on the First and Third Thursday of every month at the New York Blood Center (located at 310 East 67th Street). We currently speak more than a dozen languages, including Russian, Hindi,Greek, Turkish, Taiwanese,Spanish and German, with past and present members from over 30 countries, from Afghanistan to Zaire.
