Join a Rotarian Action Group

Rotarian Action Groups are international groups of Rotarians, family members, program participants, and alumni who are experts in a particular field or passionate about topics such as microcredit, peace, the environment, or water.

Rotarian Action Groups (RAGs) give members opportunities to engage in service activities and network with likeminded members around the world.

Group members collaborate with clubs and districts on service projects by offering their technical expertise or helping them find partners, funding, and other resources. RAGs can also help clubs prepare grant applications, conduct community assessments, raise funds, and establish monitoring and evaluation plans.

Read about the groups inspiring service activities in the Rotarian Action Groups annual report.
