ROTARY COMMUNITY CORPS
A Rotary Community Corps (RCC) is a team of non-Rotarian men and women who are committed to their community’s long-term development and self sufficiency. An RCC is sponsored by a Rotary club and, like Rotaract and Interact clubs, is one of Rotary’s partners in service. The main principle of the program is to enable RCC members to personally address and solve problems in the area where they work or live.
The RI Board of Directors officially adopted the RCC program in 1988, following its introduction in 1985 by M.A.T. Caparas from the Philippines, who was then RI President-Elect. The RCC was envisioned as an organization of community members who wish to improve the places where they live or work. Until 1999, RCCs were referred to as either Rotary Village Corps or Rotary Community Service Corps.
