The Rotary e-Club of NextGen was chartered on the 1st of June 2012 and we have had an amazing few years since then.

A key mission of NextGen is to support members in pursuing interests and projects that are meaningful to them. We welcome anyone with a passion and an interest in changing the world for the better. In the past, this has lead to strong relationships with:

  • Days for Girls, Gold Coast;
  • Australian Rotary Health;
  • Royal Flying Doctor Service;
  • Birdsville Races;
  • Port Hedland Seafarer’s Centre;
  • Remote communities in central Australia;
  • Ian Loxton Pancreatic Cancer Foundation;
  • Koala Chlamydia vaccination;
  • and more.
  • Vocational Training Team Global Grant;
  • Helping GC Kids;
  • KIVA;
  • Umoja (Kenya);
  • Aussies Lending a Hand in Liberia
  • Rotary Malaria Vaccine Project
  • James Jacob Fellowship;
  • Care for Life, Gold Coast;
  • Orange Sky Laundry;

Thanks to our online format, we have boasted members from all over the world including Japan, Germany, the USA, and Dubai. Whilst this sometimes means our members have to be extra committed to make our meetings due to time differences, it also means we have a wider community than any traditional club could boast and the people and projects we can support are vast.

We also far surpass Rotary International goals with regards to membership and representation of female and younger members.
