Volunteer for the Rotaract Wiki Project
Help create an unofficial International Rotaract Wikipedia site, also known as Rotaract Wiki. The goal of the Rotaract Wiki is to be a vast knowledgebase of information about Rotaract and the world of Rotary. We also hope that clubs and DRRs will actively update the Wiki to include club information–such as meeting locations and meeting times. Imagine being able to look up on the wiki any country or any state, and seeing a list of all active Rotaract clubs in that area, and being able to lookup each of those clubs for their meeting locations and presidential contact information.
Sign up: Fill out the early adopter interest form!
