Get Involved


When you get involved, it’s not just your community, club, and projects that benefit — you benefit, too. As an active Rotarian, you’ll develop skills like public speaking, project management, and event planning. You’ll meet interesting people from your community and from around the world. You’ll tackle local issues that are important to you and your fellow club members. You’ll feel the shared sense of purpose that comes from working together to better your community.

When it comes to being an active Rotarian, the opportunities are endless. Here are some ways to get involved.


The top two reasons people join Rotary are to give back to their communities and to connect with like-minded leaders and friends. Our members stay with Rotary year after year for the same reasons. What motivated you to join Rotary? What have you set out to accomplish with your club and as a Rotarian?


Rotary brings together people like you — leaders from all cultures and occupations who want to use their distinct expertise for good. People whose sense of responsibility inspires them to give back to their communities. Who step forward to tackle the toughest challenges — and persevere to create lasting change in communities around the world.

Together, we empower youth, improve health, promote peace, and advance our communities in all corners of the globe.

With 1.2 million members worldwide, our global community’s impact has never been greater — and it continues to grow.

When Rotarians come together and commit to a cause, like our PolioPlus initiative, the magnitude of our impact is clear. And with the ongoing support of Rotarians like you, we will continue the fight to End Polio Now.

You joined Rotary because you want to make a difference. Because you believe in our motto: Service Above Self. Because you’re committed to integrity and making change happen, and because the areas that we focus on are important to you.
