Rotaract is a service club for young men and women ages 18-30. They are sponsored by Rotary clubs who provide continued guidance and support for the many projects and events they organize. The Rotary Club of Toronto has sponsored two Rotaract clubs in the district, the Rotaract Club of Toronto and the Rotaract Club of the University of Toronto, based on the downtown Toronto campus. Following the motto of fellowship through service, the two Rotaract Clubs have forged a lasting relationship with each other and with the Rotary Club of Toronto through many joint projects and events over the years.


Arts for Children and Youth (AFCY) is a charitable, grassroots organization that engages young people from Toronto's under-serviced communities in meaningful arts education outreach programs. They do this by working collaboratively with many partners, which include schools and community venues. AFCY is the only arts organization that strategically and educationally links school and community-based artistic experiences. It is within the imagination that people can discover new possibilities and attach new meaning to their lives. Their programs invite young people to explore, re-envision and make new connections to the self and to the world around them.

The Rotaract Clubs have partnered with AFCY to enhance the organization’s ability to provide digital arts education, an art form AFCY has identified as being one of the most powerful and accessible to its youth participants. AFCY will receive a portable digital photo/computer kit, a portable digital sound recording kit, and a portable digital photo booth. This equipment will support the organization’s capacity to develop and implement sustainable state-of-the-art digital-arts educational programming for marginalized young people living in Toronto’s priority neighbourhoods.

In an effort to honour 100 years of Rotary in Toronto, AFCY will use its digital arts programs to generate awareness of the Clubs’ mission and its 100th Anniversary.
Our $50K project covers materials and programming to rejuvenate these offerings for 2012-13, and beyond.
