Why Passport Clubs Work
A passport club is a Rotary club that encourages members to attend meetings of other Rotary clubs as long as they attend a specified number of meetings in their own club each year. Members are also encouraged to participate in service projects organized by other clubs. On the Gold Coast of Australia, Rotarians are using a passport club to reach young professionals who want to use their passion, energy, and intelligence to better their community.
