Why join Rotary?

Maybe you’ve seen a need in your 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 people in your community or abroad.

Whatever your reason, joining Rotary can help you achieve these goals, and so much more.

There's something that all Rotary club members have in common: We take action. As community volunteers, we reach out to neighbours in need. We build, support, and organize. We save lives. We work locally and globally.
Around the world and around the corner, the 1.2 million men and women of Rotary

Use their skills to help others

Whether you're a veteran volunteer or new to community service, we're looking for people like you.
The Rotary motto Service Above Self conveys the humanitarian spirit of the organisation’s more than 1.2 million members. Strong fellowship among Rotarians and meaningful community and international service projects characterize Rotary worldwide.
The club is where most of Rotarians' meaningful service work is carried out. Clubs can be engaged not only in their communities, but also internationally.

What Rotarians get out of Rotary depends largely on what they put into it.
