Community Service Projects are managed by the Community Service Committee under the guidance of the Community Service Director.

Some projects involve raising funds and donating to organisations for a specific purpose, some are more "hands on".

Examples of Hands On projects are:


Rotary Sail into Life

Rotary Sail into Life is an organisation sponsored by Rotary to provide an opportunity for all to experience the pleasure of sailing. This organisation also has links to Sailability, class yacht racing and the Paralympics. The craft are designed for and can be handled by people of all ages and abilities. Sail into Life is wheelchair accessible. 


Bringing the fun and freedom of sailing to all Australians, Rotary Sail into Life - Mandurah is a combined initiative of the three Rotary Clubs of Mandurah, Western Australia, who together have raised funds to purchase a fleet of accessible sailing dinghys. These dinghys can be sailed by almost anyone regardless of their physical or mental ability.  Members of the Rotary Club of Mandurah City  provide hands on support to the weekend sailing activities at the Mandurah Offshore Fishing & Sailing Club several times a year.
