Join a Rotary Action Group

Rotary Action Groups are international groups of Rotarians, family members, program participants, alumni, and non-Rotarians who are experts in a particular field or passionate about topics such as economic development, peace, addiction prevention, the environment, or water.

Rotary Action Groups give participants opportunities to engage in service activities and network with likeminded members around the world.

Aligned with Rotary's priority "increase our impact", Action Groups collaborate with clubs and districts on service projects by offering their technical expertise and support on project planning and implementation, or helping them find partners, funding, and other resources. Action Groups 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 Rotary Action Groups annual report.
