Rotary International has its own channel on YouTube that offers video content to those interested in Rotary. The YouTube channel supplements video on Rotary’s website by providing Rotarians the means of embedding video onto their own sites. Rotarians, Rotaractors, and Interactors are encouraged to select from a growing collection of pieces from RVM: The Rotarian Video Magazine and from Humanity in Motion public service announcements.
In addition, the YouTube channel allows you to be notified about new videos, and viewers can comment on the videos.
