Rotaract is a collegiate community service and professional development organization for young men and women aged 18-30, valuing diversity. Our club is sponsored by the DeLand Breakfast Rotary and a part of Rotary International. After being on hiatus, Rotaract has been rechartered since 2016 after its initial charter in 2004. We are always looking for potential Rotaractors to help engage in the service of helping others, as well as developing professional and leadership skills while respecting the rights of others. Besides acts of community service, we participate in conferences and study abroad opportunities.
