Internal Processes Outcomes will be: governance standards at the required level, regular review of proceses, regular updates on progress.

Fundraising (for Projects) Outcomes will be: Projects that promote Rotary and Heirisson Club and be projects that members can engage in.

Outbound Rotary International Student Lauren Wolters' Amazon Trip

The first of a few posts to come showing the amazing 3 week trip to the Amazon and north east of Brazil I recently went on with 31 other rotary exchange students from 16 different countries.
The first week of the trip was spent in the Amazonas state, both in cities such as Manaus; the capital of Amazonas and in the amazon itself. From walks through the forest, 4 days on a boat sleeping in hammocks, visiting an Amazonian tribe, catching piranhas, feeding monkeys, swimming with dolphins, visiting a village in the Amazon and having a churrasco on the beach, we did all that was to offer in the amazon. I learnt so much about the conservation of the forest, way of life of tribe people, animals and plants in the amazon and so much more.

December is family month. It is a time to focus on our families, to involve them in our Rotary service, and to challenge ourselves to do even more for those in need. Because there are so many families and so many children waiting for our help, we, as Rotarians, cannot look away.

About GYSD

Established in 1988, Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) celebrates and mobilizes the millions of young people who improve their communities through service.  GYSD is the largest service event in the world and the only one dedicated to the contributions that children and youth make 365 days of the year.
GYSD is celebrated each year in more than 135 countries, with young people working together–and with schools, youth organizations, nonprofits, community and faith-based organizations, national service programs, government agencies, and  adult mentors– to address the world’s most critical issues and change their communities.

What are the goals of Global Youth Service Day?

Scale: Engage millions of young people, ages 5-25, especially those not usually asked to serve, in an early step on a life-long path of service and civic engagement.
Visibility: Recognize, celebrate and raise public awareness of the year-round contributions of young people, youth service programs, and partner organizations, especially among the media and public officials.
Impact: Have a positive impact on young people and on communities through meaningful, youth-led projects that meet community needs in the areas of health, education, human service, human rights, and the environment. Projects reflect YSA’s four key strategies that create change: awareness, service, advocacy, and philanthropy.

How can my school/organization participate?

Whether organizing a service project or a celebration event, there are so many ways to be involved in Global Youth Service Day. Schools and organizations may work with young people to start their own project, or sponsor or join an existing project. Projects can be as simple as a “Thank You” picnic celebrating your organization’s young people, or large-scale and service-focused, such as a city-wide clean-up or a town “fun run” to raise money for a charity. Browse the website for Ideas and Tools to help with project planning.
YSA offers grants to youth, schools, and organizations to fund GYSD and other service and service-learning projects. Grants are already distributed for GYSD 2016, but sign up for email updates to receive news of upcoming grant opportunities.
