We believe each of us can embrace who we are,
can define our future, and can change the world.
Rotaracting is more than an activity, it is a way of life.
Rotaract is a Global movement spread across 160+ countries.
It is about giving unto others, about evolving one's self, about honing talent and sensitivity. Oh, and about having fun, laughing, and enjoying meaningfully the time that lies empty in our hands.
We, at Rotaract Club of Central Calcutta, try simply to channelize the potential energy latent in each one of the people who join us, to give opportunities, open doors, and forge bonds that will last.
With us, you get to explore the world around you, build networks and friendships, serve the community and be a part of defining projects, hone your professional skills and develop yourself in an environment that you're comfortable in - showcasing your ideas and projecting all that you believe in, on a global platform.
Rotaract originally began as a Rotary International youth program in 1968 at Charlotte North Rotary Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States, and has grown into a major Rotary-sponsored organization of over 10,904 clubs spread around the world and 250,792 members in 184 countries.It is a service, leadership, professional and community service organization (often miscommunicated as a Social Service Club) for young men and women
Rotaract focuses on the development of young adults as leaders in their communities and workplaces. Clubs around the world also take part in international service projects, in a global effort to bring peace and international understanding to the world.
"Rotaract" stands for "Rotary in Action", although the name originally comes from a combination of "Rotary" and "Interact" (International + Action), the high school level program created by Rotary International in 1962.
