The Rotaract Club of Pennant Hills – Cherrybrook (part of Rotary International) is an organisation for youth that provides local, national and international communities. Our club is determined to help grow our youth to become young business professionals who aspire to what they want to be and where they want to go.
We have partnered with The Rotary Club of West Pennant Hills & Cherrybrook and The Rotary Club of Pennant Hills who provide us with mentorship and guide us to make that difference we want to make to the local community.
Being a part of Rotaract expands your friend’s group. It can give you access to many opportunities like increasing your chance to go to the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) which many people claim as a life-changing experience. You also have the opportunity to attend the District Conference, Rotaract National Conference, Interota (Rotaract International Conference), Rotaract International Pre-convention and International Conference every year.
Meet Our Board
Every year we have an elected board to do administration tasks to ensure the smooth running the club. At our Annual General Meeting, the members of the club elect a new board. These positions can change, but some will remain in their previous roles.
Meet our current board:
Jason Terry – President
Hi! I have been a Rotaract member for three years, and for the past 12 months I have also been a member of West Pennant Hills & Cherrybrook Rotary Club. I was selected to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) at a district level in 2019 and I was chosen to go to the first RYLA Oceania in 2020. I love to do my part for the local, national and international communities, which is very rewarding. In my downtime, I like to play golf and play board games with friends and family.
