Rotary is represented by a diverse group of people who speak different languages and have different cultures, yet share a common desire to do Service Above Self.
Rotary is an organization that draws its strength from the Rotarians who choose to Serve Above Self as Club Members. However, every Rotary Club is a unique and independent organization that requires a Board and Directors, along with a yearly-elected Club President.
Just as we engage in global collaboration, Rotarians have many opportunities to interact with other Rotarians such as:
- Visiting Rotarians from other countries
- Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) students
- Rotary Homestay Programs
- Rotary District Events
- Rotary International Convention
Nurturing friendships that develop from Rotary intercultural exchange is how our service organization fosters peace and global understanding. After all, Rotary builds goodwill and better friendships among people, no matter how different and diverse we may be.
