Rotary International Programs and service opportunities are designed to help Rotarians meet needs in their own communities and reach out to assist people in need worldwide.  Almost too numerous to name, here are some of the programs established to promote Humanity in Action by fostering international understanding:

1.  Rotary Centers for International Studies in peace and conflict resolution...

2.  Rotaract..fosters professional development and service (young adults age 18-30)

3.  Rotary Community Corps -a group of non-rotarians who work to improve their community.

4.  Rotary Youth Exchange - clubs and districts send and host students ages 15-19 who travel abroad for cultural exchanges.

5.  World Community Service (WCS) - Rotary clubs and districts from two different countries form partnerships to implement community service projects.  (see ProjectLINK at

6.  The Rotary Foundation - A not-for-profit corporation whose mission is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.  We strive to do this with Financial Support from Rotarians: 

Annual Programs Fund - Provides grants and awards through Foundation programs

Permanent Fund - an endowment from which only a portion of the earnings are spent in support of Foundation programs, ensuring the long-term viability of the Foundation.

PolioPlus Fund - which supports Rotary's goal of a polio-free world.
