A Rotary Community Corps (RCC) is a group of non-Rotarians who share our commitment to changing the world through service projects.
RCC members plan and carry out projects in their communities and support local Rotary club projects. There are more than 10,000 corps in 100 countries. RCCs are active everywhere Rotary is present: in urban and rural areas, and in both developed and developing countries.
Projects vary: animal protection, water quality, hunger, education, and the needs of the disabled. The Rotary Club of Port St. Lucie, sponsors an RCC, known as People Serious about Litter, committed to addressing the City’s litter problems.
How do I join an RCC?
RCCs can exist anywhere a local Rotary club sponsors one. You can find an RCC in your area by contacting your local Rotary Club.
How do I form an RCC?
You can form an RCC anywhere community members are interested in working with Rotary. Here are some guidelines:
- Work with other local residents to identify the community’s greatest needs using this assessment form.
- Work with your local Rotary club to outline how you will work together.
- Recruit RCC members. Start with a core group of members. Community organizations and non-governmental agencies are good places to recruit.
