By Kareen Liez Datoy | Posted on July 24, 2023

The beginning of a new Rotary year stands for fresh starts, new perspectives, and reaffirmed dedication. It’s a chance for Rotaractors to gather together, think back on the year’s accomplishments, and make plans for the future. Through this, we may rekindle our friendships, encourage one another, and fortify our ties as a community of volunteers.

This creates a lot of opportunities to make a big difference in the world we live in. It’s time to defend the values of harmony and mental health and to engage in challenging conversations that could help create a brighter future. Together, as young people, we have the power to spread optimism throughout the world.

How to Make the Most of the New Rotary Year

We must get ready for the opportunities and challenges that we will encounter as we start this new chapter. Here are some things to think about:

Establish Specific Goals

Determine the areas in which you wish to make a difference. Establish quantifiable objectives that are consistent with the notion of spreading hope. Your actions will be guided by this clarity, which will ensure a targeted strategy.

Create Action Plans

Divide your objectives into manageable steps. Make thorough plans that explain how you will accomplish these goals. This will serve as a success roadmap and aid your organization all year long. This is very important for your respective clubs to have a clear goal.

Take Part in Continuous Learning

Through various training courses and seminars, broaden your knowledge and abilities. Look for chances to learn about fostering peace, mental health, and effective communication. You can better assist your community if you have greater resources.

Promote Collaborative Relationships

Effective service requires strong connections with other Rotaractors, Rotary members, and local authorities. By working together, we can take advantage of our abilities, pool our resources, and improve the lives of the people we serve.

Expectations for the New Rotary Year as Rotaractors

We Rotaractors have a special responsibility to influence the world. Instead of loitering, we spend our time helping others and taking part in activities that can make a difference in today’s society. This Rotary year, we can anticipate:

Opportunities for Service

Plan and execute a variety of activities and projects for service like Rotaract Club of Kandaya-Tacloban’s EduCAR project which aims to help children-at-risk. We also anticipate participating in efforts promoting mental health, environmental preservation, educational endeavors, and community development. These possibilities will provide us with the chance to improve the lives of others.

Rotaractors help teach a group of children-at-risk in Tagpuro, Tacloban City through games, lectures and videos.

Development and Growth

We will have many possibilities to advance both personally and professionally. We anticipate improving our communication skills, leadership capacity, and comprehension of the difficulties our communities face through training and seminars.

Advocacy and Awareness

We will have the opportunity to promote causes that are consistent with our values as ambassadors of good change likeEnd Polio, Breast Cancer Awareness and Environmental Cleanliness campaigns. We can increase public understanding of issues like conflict resolution through discourse, mental health, and peacebuilding. Our unified voice has the power to spread, encouraging others to support our cause.

As Rotaractors, we do what we can to help clean the environment so we can contribute to making the world a better place to live.

This year’s theme, “Create Hope in the World” perfectly captures what Rotaractors do. It serves as a reminder that every action we take, no matter how insignificant, affects the lives of others significantly. We may strive toward a future where people can thrive and hope becomes a reality by putting a focus on peace and mental health. Let’s rejoice in this fresh beginning and get ready.
