Community Initiatives at Mount Allison: Mount Allison Rotaract

The last few weeks have been pretty hectic. I have had time to help with Mount Allison's Rotaract Club. It is the university-level branch of Rotary International. We will be very active next year.We've been helping to create an Interact (high school level rotary) at Tantramar Regional High School and with are fundraising to support the Blood:Water Mission initiative. If you're interested, keep updated with the group at our website and on Facebook.

About Rotaract

Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30. Rotaract clubs are either community or university based, and they’re sponsored by a local Rotary club. This makes them true "partners in service" and key members of the family of Rotary.

As one of Rotary’s most significant and fastest-growing service programs, with more than 7,000 clubs in about 163 countries and geographical areas, Rotaract has become a worldwide phenomenon.

How does it work?

All Rotaract efforts begin at the local, grassroots level, with members addressing their communities’ physical and social needs while promoting international understanding and peace through a framework of friendship and service.
