What do we do?
The purpose of Rotaract is to provide an opportunity for young men and women to enhance the knowledge and skills that will assist them in personal development, to address the physical and social needs of their communities, and to promote better relations between all people worldwide through a framework of friendship and service.
Rotaract clubs hold formal meetings twice a month. Club members get together for volunteer work, social events and professional/leadership development workshops. See the FAQ for more information.

Our Logo -The Footprint
When the members of the Rotaract Club of Subiaco first started gathering, they didn't have a set meeting venue. Instead members would gather on the corners of Rokeby Road and Hay Street and walk to an office, restaurant or council building to conduct their meetings. This tradition continued for several years, until the club began meeting regularly at the Irish Club on Townshend Street. The club now meets at the Shenton Park Community Centre when we have a guest speaker and The Vic Hotel for all other meetings.
The Footprint been used ever since to represent the history of the club.
