Our Structure

 

Rotaract clubs decide how to organize and run their own clubs, manage their funds, and plan and carry out activities and service projects that are important to their communities. Rotary clubs that sponsor Rotaract clubs offer guidance and support and work with Rotaractors as partners in service.

 

The Rotaract club of Toronto has been active in our local community since 1980 and is one of the oldest clubs in Canada. We are proudly Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Toronto and a part of Rotary International District 7070.

 

Not from Toronto? No problem! If you don't live in the Toronto area, there are more than ten-thousand Rotaract clubs spread across 100+ countries and geographic regions, connecting approximately 250,792 active Rotaractors. You can likely find an established Rotaract club to join or a Rotary club that can help you start your own!

Rotary International is the 100+-year-old, globally recognized humanitarian institution behind #RotaractTO. Rotary is made up of three parts: the local clubs, Rotary International, and The Rotary Foundation. Together, we work to make lasting change in our communities and around the world.

Club Committees

Community Service

 

The community service committee is dedicated to building, developing, maintaining, and improving our community. To help the people we live with, the neighbourhood we live in, the city we call home, the country we reside in, the world that we are a part of. We have achieved outstanding things in the past: raised funds to reduce homelessness, improve education, fight AIDS and to help the less privileged. This year, we are taking ourselves one step further and encouraging others to join us. We are going to tackle bigger problems and take on bigger projects.

International Service

 

The international service committee aims to connect and assist communities around the globe, to respond to humanitarian and natural crises through fundraisers and sustainable service projects. Members of the committee actively engage in exchanging ideas, organizing events, and projects on Rotary International's six areas of focus. The committee allows its members to expand on their Rotaract boundaries and explore the world through roundtrips and project expansion by partnering with other clubs abroad. 

Professional Development

 

The professional development committee provides a platform for members to learn from leaders and foster personal development. Members of the committee lead various events, plan for and invite guest speakers as well as organize networking events in addition to sharing ideas. This year we are continuing the Mentorship Program in partnership with the Rotary Club of Toronto as well as introducing new professional development events relevant to our members and the projects we aim to complete.

Public Image 

The public image committee is in charge of all our external public-facing communication, as well as organizing and executing initiatives to raise awareness about our club in the community. With a uniform public image strategy, we strengthen our name, our brand, and our work, making them even more recognizable.

Annual Fundraiser

The annual fundraiser committee plays a pivotal role in our fundraising efforts for the club. Every year, the Rotaract Club of Toronto hosts its marquee fundraiser gala that benefits an organization or project. Examples of past events are "Gatsby Speakeasy," "Vodka Tasting Nights" and "Step Up For Camp." If you have an interest or skill in event planning, fundraising, or sponsorship management and want to be part of one of the biggest Rotaract events of the year, come join us on the Annual Fundraiser committee! 

 

Social and Wellness

 

The social and wellness committee is here to help our members get to know one another beyond our general meetings. It aims to organize exciting social events that encourage engagement, bonding, and fellowship within our club, as well as promoting good physical and mental health. 

 

Club Documentation Working Group

 

The club documentation workgroup is operating to create documentation that guides club members and help with transition planning between Rotaract years (e.g. enhance our club Constitution, discuss membership requirements, strengthen decision-making principles). If you are looking to share your ideas and want to enhance your skills, your involvement would be a great way to achieve this! The potential for resumé enhancement includes policy development, editing documentation language for clarity and strengthening organizational skills.
