About



Who we are
Willamette Rotaract is a Rotary-based service club for professionals in their 20′s.  Members from all over the Portland Metro area ranging in wide variety of vocations come together in spirit of service to better our members, our communities, and the world.

Each month there are two meetings, one social, and one volunteer event. In addition to these regular events, we start and maintain ongoing projects, such as Panhandling for Polio and The WAPI Project. We also partner with other local and international organizations and assist with projects and events.

Professional Development
Our demographic is 18-30 young professionals, so most of us are coming into our first career and or are looking to get into a new career.  What do we do to help you?  We bring in business leaders that share their success stories, and give us tips on how to accomplish our career dreams.   There are also opportunities to do a presentation to a rotary club.  What do you get out of this?
