Service Projects

Rotary clubs are making an impact in communities around the world. The role of a service committee is to lead the club’s project initiatives to make a difference in the communities they work in.

The service committee allows clubs to meet real needs in the communities and around the world. It is responsible for planning projects, carrying them out and evaluating them. The committee identifies opportunities for the community and works with other organizations and volunteers to maximize the impact of our projects. At RCTS, it goes above and beyond. It means helping local communities providing immediate assistance, as well as tools to help in their own development. It means being involved on a level that it becomes part of you, even if for just a couple of hours. It means a group of people united as a family to make the world a better place.

Here service projects RCTS are involving in:

St. Albans Boys and Girls Club

We are always looking for volunteers!

Each project demands a few hours periodically, but even if a member or guest only has 1 or 2 hours a month, it would be already extremely helpful.

All our projects are located on places with easy access to public transportation and parking and occur during the week (not on business hours) as well as weekends, so there´s plenty of opportunities to be involved and to make meaningful connections with both the community and other members of the club.

“It gives me a lot of pleasure to know we are able to impact people´s lives, and it also helps me de-stress about everything that might have to happen during the week. When working on a project, personal problems become less important and we give a lot of value for the smaller details in life. It´s also quality time that I spend with friends, bounding and creating a stronger group every time.”

– Rafaela, Service Committee chair
