Members of the Ventura Rotaract Club held a meeting in the community conference room and toured the CAPS Media Center. Rotaract brings together people ages 18-30 to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service. In communities worldwide, Rotary and Rotaract members work side by side to take action through service. Among other community service projects, the Rotaract crew is exploring a collaboration with CAPS Media to document the group’s annual housing building project in Mexico.
