Why Join Rotary

Maybe you’ve seen a need in your own community and wondered how you could help. Maybe you want to use your professional skills to help others — or even learn new skills. Maybe you’re seeking connections with other service-minded professionals in your community or abroad.

Whatever your reason, joining Rotary can help you achieve these goals, and so much more. See why these men and women are members of their local Rotary club.

Community service

“Being a Rotarian means serving your community, networking, making friends, and building international relationships.”

Networking

“Rotary is a tremendous network. Leaders in the community can connect and reach out to people in need.”

Leadership skills

“Leadership is a key focus of Rotary. Through Rotary, you have the opportunity to expand your leadership skills and achieve your goals.”
— Norma Madayag-Reilly, Rotary Club of Newark, New York, USA

International service

“If you truly want to give back to the community – and to the world at large – you join Rotary. It has an arm that reaches across all barriers. To be part of that is very powerful.”
— Aruna Koushik, Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland, Ontario, Canada

Friendship

“Every Rotary club in the world, no matter how big or small, has one thing in common: friendship. And it's from this base of friendship that we serve our community.”
— Kemal Attilâ, Rotary Club of Ankara-Tandogan, Turkey

Family-friendly

“For me, Rotary is a way of life – one that my husband and I have lived our whole lives.”
— Julia Gereda de Carlin, Rotary Club of Monterrico-Surco, Peru

Opportunities for young people

“There's so much diversity in the work Rotary does. It can give you exposure to so many different areas and help you find what your interests really are.”
— Andrea Tirone, Rotaract Club of University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada

“A great tool Rotary has is its educational programs. I was an exchange student (Rotary Youth Exchange) in Switzerland in high school. That’s how I got involved and what made me want to give back.”
— Jorge Aguilar, Rotaract Club of Chicago, Illinois, USA
