Rotaract club reaches out to youth

First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

Sandys Rotaract Club of Bermuda is inviting the island's young adults to learn more about the organisation.

The club will be hosting an information session for those who might be interested in joining at the Bermuda College today.

“Bermuda's Rotaract Club would like to personally invite you to be a part of a growing network of dedicated young individuals who are looking to work together to serve others and advance our community,” vice-president Jessica Tannock said.

“If you are aged 18 to 30, looking for a challenge and a way to meet and connect with new people, this is the club for you.

“We endeavour to enhance the knowledge and skills that will assist young adults in personal development, to address the physical and social needs of our community, and to promote local and international relations through a framework of friendship and service.”

Sandys Rotaract, which is sponsored by Sandys Rotary, is recognised by Rotary International. It adheres to the organisation's goals of developing professional and leadership skills, emphasising respect for the rights of others, and to promoting ethical standards and the dignity of all useful occupations, and providing opportunities for young people to address the needs and concerns of the community and the world.

It also aims to provide opportunities for working in co-operation with sponsoring rotary clubs and to motivate young people for eventual membership in rotary clubs.

Sandys Rotaract members meet twice a month on Thursdays in the blue room at the Bermuda College. The meetings offer a platform to exchange ideas, plan activities and projects and to socialise.

“Everyone's voice can be heard,” Ms Tannock added.

The information session will be held on Thursday in the Blue Room of the Bermuda College at 5.45pm. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/events/303174140059560.
