The Rotaract Club of Shanghai (RACS) is a non-profit social organization composed of young professionals and graduate students living in Shanghai that is involved in cultural activities and volunteer projects around China. It is the first of its kind in Mainland China, and one of more than 7600 Rotaract clubs all over the world with an active membership of over 180,000. Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Shanghai, the RACS plans and executes voluntary, social, fellowship and leadership projects to develop its members into skilled and socially responsible world citizens.
Our club was chartered in December 2007, and has an active membership of over 20 members.
Essentially, the organization thrives on the humanitarian ideas of future leaders, which last year had successfully created such projects as migrant schoolchildren fieldtrips, food collections, impoverished private school renovations, orphanage activities, and more!
