こと (koto) here is a "dummy noun". For the moment, you can think of it as standing in for "thing(s)".
So this means "thing(s) (I) want to do". All of "yaritai koto" should be treated as a noun, grammatically (or you can think of ~tai form of verbs as like an adjective).

Of course, this isn't limited to "yaritai koto". A verb in ~tai form + a noun can be used in many situations:
言いたいことがある (iitai koto ga aru) = there is something I want to say
やりたい仕事を見つける (yaritai shigoto wo mitsukeru) = find the job (career) you want to do
今一番やりたいこと (ima ichiban yaritai koto) = the thing I most want to do right now
サッカーやりたい人 (sakkaa yaritai hito ) = people who want to play soccer
