Supporting tomorrow's leaders
Our many youth projects include sponsoring applicants to attend a variety of Rotary-run camps and seminars, presenting awards to primary schools and much more.
We provide free eye screening checks for 5 and 6 year olds at primary schools throughout the Perth metropolitan areas.
Launched in 2008, we are a modern, active club of community-minded women and men aged in their 20s to 70s with a vision of world peace and the drive to make it happen.
Our Rotary Club meets weekly on a Wednesday evening for 1 hour in the metropolitan Perth suburb of Mount Claremont to plan and execute meaningful projects here in Western Australia and overseas. All our club meetings are live streamed on Facebook, to help you stay connected even if you can't physically attend.
What sets Rotary Clubs apart from other non profit organizations is our fundamental code of ethics (known as the "Four Way Test") and the fact that every cent raised for a cause goes directly to that project.
If you would like to make a difference, locally or globally, why not join us?
