We care about Oklahoma City
We are business people through service helping the community
The main objective of Rotary is service – in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today’s most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence.
The South Oklahoma City Rotary Club also supports programs for youth, educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other professionals, and vocational and career development. The Rotary motto is Service Above Self
Rotary has been working to eradicate polio
For more than 30 years Rotary International has contributed more than $1.8 billion toward eradicating the disease worldwide. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.
We can make a difference in our COMMUNITY.
We help out across the City such as packing food boxes at Feed The Children, Reading to the kids at the Boys & Girls Club, Donating books to the Capitol Hill Little Library, or Giving new bikes and helmets to elementary school children with perfect attendance. Come join us helping those around us.
Together we can make a difference in our WORLD
…in Oklahoma City, In Oklahoma, in the Unite States, and the world. We need more Rotarian volunteers so call us or come to lunch and find out what you can do to help and support your neighbors. We also have fun doing these rewarding projects.
We help build dynamic leaders for tomorrow’s world – RYLA.
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive leadership experience organized by Rotary clubs and districts where you develop your skills as a leader while having fun and making connections. Organized by our district, we are strong supporters of RYLA by sponsoring students and raising funds to build a fully accessible Ropes Course.
We work with the World.
Each summer, our club joins other clubs in our District in Wings of Rotary for a cultural and educational exchange. We send a team of 10th to 12th graders to the Japan Rotary District 2520. For approximately two weeks the students are hosted by Rotarians and get to experience the cultural. In return, we host students from Japan.
