Rotaract’s mission is to promote the Rotarian motto of “service above self” among young people across the world. We focus on three areas: international projects, local community service, and campus engagement. Throughout the year we work with other groups on campus to promote events and fundraisers designed to connect students with the spirit of service. We also consult and partner with the New Haven Rotary Club and attend Rotary conferences at the United Nations in order to connect and interact with over 1,300 Rotary and Rotaract members from around the world. This calendar year, we aim to fundraise to provide medical equipment to a Turkish hospital that services Syrian refugees, along with monthly local volunteering events. To both fundraise and raise awareness for our Syrian Refugee Medical Relief project, we have partnered with Rotary clubs spanning New Haven to Germany. Feel free to stop by at one of our weekly meetings, and check out our website at www.yalerotaract.com to learn more!
