Rotaract gives young adults the opportunity to get involved in volunteering and broaden their CV through the likes of cause-based groups of likeminded people. Rotaract also gives people the chance to reach out to a worldwide network.
Here are the current faces of the officials:
Penelope is very aware of building a sustainable and diverse Rotaract membership that includes multiyear students from the University of Leeds and likeminded young adults who work and live in Leeds. Penelope’s study and career plans have no geographical boundaries, and she is already connecting with like-minded Rotaract groups across the UK and Rotaractors across the worldwide, as part of Rotary International.
Leeds Rotaract is keen to connect with the huge range of diverse Rotarians in the Leeds based Rotary clubs of: Aireborough LS18, Calverley LS28, Headingley LS6, Leeds LS10, Leeds Elmete LS14, Leeds Pheonix LS1, Leeds White Rose LS1, Roundhay LS17, Wetherby & District LS22 and Wetherby Wharfdale LS22. Penelope is very grateful for the support of our District Rotaract Lead, Tony Jordan of Thirsk Rotary.
For those who have already experienced Interact as 12-18 year olds within communities or schools, Rotaract is an ideal post-18 Rotary family progression route. Penelope, like many young people, took part in the national government supported National Citizen Service. Rotaract is there for anyone inspired by such 16-17 year old community-based projects.

For 16-17 year olds who have taken part in our Rotary Young Leadership Awards (RYLA) Rotary Youth Leadership Awards | Rotary International residential experience, Rotaract should be their next step to stay connected with the Rotary family. Our own Yorkshire and Lincolnshire RYLA takes place just outside Halifax each summer.
We look forward to sharing more Rotaract in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire stories. If you want to find out more about the Rotaract opportunities in Leeds, then why not direct message the club via Leeds Rotaract Club (@rotaractleeds) • Instagram photos and videos
