PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Being an organization for young adults aged 18-30, a large part of Rotaract's mandate is to provide professional development to members and foster leadership amongst them. We have begun incorporating this into our meetings by including "Speak Outs" and PD Tips & Activities. Speak Outs allow one member each meeting to talk about any topic they wish for up to 5 minutes. The purpose of this is the develop public speaking skills and get people comfortable talking in front of larger crowds. PD Tips &/or activities are brought by a member each week, and can be related to any aspect of career development: networking, resumes, interviews, leadership, etc.
