Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30. Rotaract clubs are usually community-based or university-based and are sponsored by a local Rotary club making them true "partners in service" and key members of the Rotary family.
Through the Rotaract program, young adults not only augment their knowledge and skills, but they also address the physical and social needs of their communities while promoting international understanding and peace through a framework of friendship and service.
The Rotaract Club Rabat Chellah is one of more than 7600 Rotaract clubs worldwide, spread in some 158 countries. It belongs to the Rotaract District 9010, which gathers the Rotaract clubs of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Mauritania (www.rotaract9010.org).
Based in Rabat (Morocco), the Rotaract Rabat Chellah is mentored by the Rotary Rabat Chellah and is lead by youth. It gathers around 20 members, students and young professionals between 18 and 30 years old.
