We are delighted to announce that the Rotary Club of Charlottetown will be holding the initial meeting of a Rotaract Club at the University of Prince Edward Island on Friday, November 17th. With the assistance of the UPEI's International Relations Office, Dr. Barb Campbell, and Rachel Greathouse, Director Martin Ruben is expecting about 25 to 30 young adults between the ages of 18 and 30 to attend. An invitation has also been sent out to the students of Holland College. At this meeting, Director Martin, will make a presentation and gather the names of prospective Rotaract Club members. After the meeting and with the objective met, steps will be taken to charter a Rotaract Club under the sponsorship of the Rotary Club of Charlottetown. This will be the only Rotaract Club to operate in PEI at this time. The Club Board of Directors has authorized a small budget to support this initiative that it believes will provide the opportunity for these young adults to experience all that Rotary has to offer.
 
 
The main objective for the Rotaract Club is to forward the ideals and promotion of Rotary. The other objectives for the Rotaract Club are to improve the integration of International students with other students, promote the greater understanding and goodwill of the local community, and introduction to possible local employers. This should improve their chances of staying in PEI after graduation through this integration. Many of these students are exceptional and are expected to have a positive impact on the economy of PEI, not just by being potential employees, but by their entrepreneurial spirit. In cities which have been welcoming to International students, the economy has been measurably improved, providing benefits to all citizens. The Club Board is proud to supports this new initiative based on the potential positive impacts for all concerned.
 
If you would like to attend and support Director Martin in this endeavour, please contact him at 902-388-7584 or allenfarm17@gmail.com.
