Rotaract Club is a youth development club that emphasises service over self, as well as achieving fellowship through community service, professional development and club service.
In Rotaract Club, freshmen have abundant opportunities to learn and develop themselves.
Firstly, freshmen can improve their communication and interpersonal skills through our 4 community service projects. Our community service projects cater to a wide range of beneficiaries from underprivileged children to elderly in need and freshmen can pick which project they wish to partake in. Additionally, they can clear their community service requirements and also gain leadership skills by joining the organising committee in these projects.
Next, freshmen can explore their interest through our professional development workshop (e.g. photography workshops, dialect workshop). Freshmen also have the opportunity to consult the experts in various fields in our networking session.
Lastly, through all these different sessions, we hope to provide the freshmen with ample chances to build fellowship.

"Being able to help others along the way adds meaning to my uni journey. I also hope to learn from those I serve with to discover better ways I can contribute to my community."
SIS: Year 1
"Having been on the receiving end, I believe it is significant for me to seek an avenue to consistently give back to society to express my gratitude for all the assistance I had been given. With SMU Rotaract providing students the opportunity to not only serve the community but also developing oneself, this sparks my interest as I can improve my soft skills and better present myself to assist the beneficiaries to the best of my abilities. Furthermore, having a spectrum of beneficiaries in community service projects allows us to better empathise, and understand the community from all walks of life. Ultimately, ensuring that the beneficiaries are enjoying themselves and has gained from our help is the most important aspect I wish to take away from a community service project. After all, seeing a smile on the beneficiaries’ faces never fails to brighten up my day and their joy will further motivate, encourage and strengthen my passion to continue serving. "

The club is aiming to help volunteers attain a minimum of 40 community service hours. However, this may also be subjected to changes in light of the Covid-19 situation.
Due to the current Covid-19 situation, we have the following projects which are to be confirmed:
- Project Sparks: A project to raise awareness of special needs children, and broaden the children’s perspectives
- Project Nurture: A project to link volunteers with underprivileged children, and to build up essential life skills to empower them
- Project Bloom: A project facilitating the interaction between volunteers and people with down syndrome, so as to empower them and stimulate their social and emotional development
- Several upcoming Ad hoc Projects
We provide skills workshops that aim to teach our members important life skills such as new languages. Throughout professional development networking sessions, we cater to the interests of our members and provide the opportunity to network with industry experts.
Project sessions are conducted approximately about once a month. As a member of Rotaract, Members need to attend at least 1 Rotaract Event per AY to maintain membership.
We are looking at shifting the projects online, with minimal physical activities. These virtual activities may continue until AY20/21 Term 2 depending on the school advisories.
