Rotaract Club of EMU
Rotaract club is a world renowned organization with the purpose of providing a place for young adults where they can learn from each other, develop their leadership and professional skills and make important life connections while serving their community.
What we do
Rotaract provides an opportunity for young men and women to enhance the knowledge and skills that will assist them in personal development, to address the physical and social needs of their communities, and promote better relations through the framework of friendship and service.
The goals of Rotaract are:
- To develop professional and leadership skills
- To emphasize respect for the rights of others, and promote ethical standards and the dignity of all useful occupations
- To provide opportunities for young people to address the needs and concerns of the community and our world
- To provide opportunities for working in cooperation with sponsoring Rotary Clubs (Harrisonburg Rotary Club)
- To motivate young people for eventual membership in Rotary
Activities and Projects that we do:
This club undertakes among its activities at least two major service projects annually, one to serve the community and the other to promote international understanding, and each involves all or most members of the club.
This club provides for a professional development program for its members. It is the responsibility of this club to raise the funds necessary to carry out its program. We do not solicit or accept more than occasional or incidental financial assistance from the sponsoring Rotary club, nor do we make general solicitations from Rotary clubs other than its sponsoring Rotary Club or from other Rotaract clubs; nor do we solicit financial assistance from individuals, businesses, or organizations in the community without giving something of value in return. All funds raised for service projects must be expended for that purpose.
