Service Above Self

Portland New Generations Rotary Club is a service-oriented club for people who consider themselves young at heart. The professionals that make up New Generations membership are passionate about serving their local, national, and international communities. In Rotary language, New Generations members put Service Above Self.


New Generations Rotary members participate in service projects in the Portland area, as well as internationally, based on the interest of members. Examples of service projects include tutoring children, serving food at a homeless shelter, and participating in environmental clean up projects.

Rotary also offers its members the opportunity to travel to foreign countries. By teaming up with local Rotary clubs in a particular foreign country, New Generations Rotary is able to leverage its resources and provide essential services to individuals in that community. For example, past Rotarians have built sustainable water systems for towns, assisted in micro-lending for small businesses, and worked in health clinics to distribute Polio vaccinations. Our club is currently planning a trip to India in Q1 2013 to help with Rotary International’s End Polio Now project to eradicate polio from the country.

New Generations Rotary Meetings

Each week, New Generations Rotary hosts an informative speaker, who presents a topic of interest to the Rotary members. There is plenty of time before and after the speaker’s presentation to mingle, network, and enjoy delicious appetizers.


Portland New Generations Rotary breaks the mold of a typical Rotary Club. Its members tend to be young professionals or those who consider themselves young at heart. Instead of meeting at breakfast or lunch time like most Rotary Clubs, New Generations meets in the early evening to accommodate for busy work schedules. Members of New Generations pride themselves on creating a fun environment that encourages a dynamic and creative energy.
