This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

Rotaract Club of Sheffield is looking for volunteers to service the community through projects, designed by the members themselves. At this moment, the club has been active for almost a year with projects centred around endometriosis, cerebral palsy, support for homeless people through fundraising, online campaigning and raising awareness. If you are looking for a way to develop leaderships skills whilst improving the community of Sheffield, then please reach out and let's collaborate. Now, more than ever, we need to come together and bring initiatives to better the life in Sheffield.

It is a membership club affiliated to Rotary with the same principles and ideals of service. We are currently 13 members, very diverse and inclusive, mostly students with various abilities and interests. 

No payment is needed and the club members are to find their own projects and ways of giving service to the community. The latest projects include an online conference to raise awareness and funds for Endometriosis UK, gift donation of goods to the Shelter House in Sheffield and fundraising for Cerebral Palsy Society. 

Within the last few months, the sponsored and our 'parent' Rotary club have also raised £4000 towards the Whirlow Hall Farm Trust where help is always welcomed  https://www.whirlowhallfarm.org/education , built eco-greenhouses in schools (made from plastic bottles)  and help with Food-bank distribution. Future projects include a Canal towpath clear up and preliminary organisation of our annual Schools Sheffield Young Artist competition/exhibition for 2020/21 and on line mock interviews and career advice to schools.

These are Rotary projects which we need volunteers for but the Rotaract Club will have their own priorities and ideas of how best to give service.

International service based on Rotary Foundation https://www.rotary.org/en/about-rotary/rotary-foundation  and has given $4billion on life changing sustainable projects but as you can imagine this mainly about raising funds (not hand in pocket). Most of the hands on volunteering would be on local projects.
