An Introduction to Rotaract District 5170

Rotaract is a Rotary International program for young adults, ages 18-30.  More than 7,800 Rotary clubs sponsor Rotaract clubs.  There are approximately 180,000 Rotaractors in 158 countries.

In district 5170, there are currently four Rotaract clubs. A new club is under development in the Santa Cruz Area.  More than 425 young men and women are registered Rotaractors in this District.  The majority of Rotaract clubs are college/university based.  However, in District 5170, the effort has been to develop community based clubs, or clubs that are both community-based and college/university-based.  The blending of both professional and student members has proven to be successful in our District, although we lean toward building successful community-based clubs as direct stepping stones to Rotary club membership.

In March 1968, the Rotaract Club of the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, USA, received the first Rotaract charter. To commemorate the event, the new club planted a tree on its campus.

Rotaract is now one of Rotary's fastest-growing service programs, with more than 7,000 clubs worldwide.
