Across North America, there are many new innovative Rotary Clubs forming. These clubs can be satellites of existing clubs or completely new clubs. In our district, we have several “Next-Gen” satellite clubs where members are typically 35 years old or younger. Also, the Hamburg, PA, club recently started the “Helping Hands” satellite to support people with disabilities.
Across the Northeast United States, new cause-based clubs have started with club names such as: E-club of International Innovators, District 7150 Environment satellite, Community Peace and Environment Passport, World Disability Advocacy, E-club of Global Diversity and Environment, Southeastern PA Eco satellite, and G.O.A.L.S. (Global Outreach and Local Service). There are many other Innovative Clubs in the pipeline being formed. Rotary International is encouraging us to start Innovative Clubs to increase our impact, expand our reach, enhance participant engagement, and increase our ability to adapt.
