Hello family of Rotary!
Stephanie Urchick, Rotary International Director of Zones 33-34, announced a very special vocational service project, “Rotary Works”.
“Rotary Works” is an initiative to benefit Rotarians and Rotaractors within our Zones who are experiencing career transition. Three distinct programs will provide education, networking, and/or financial resources for participants.
Our first “Rotary Works” program will be a “Career Development Series”, offered monthly via Zoom beginning at Noon on December 9th, 2020, and at Noon Eastern Time on the second Wednesday of each month thereafter. In our first program we will outline exactly how “Rotary Works” works and how it will support our members.
Monthly topics will vary from direct, self-help conversations to hands-on skill development processes. Each month our professionals will be available to discuss specific topics with you. The topics will be outlined each month in our Rotary Works Newsletter, as well as on the DACdb calendar where you can register for each event.
In the Spring of 2021, we will launch our second phase, the “Zone Job Board” — a resource to search for or post employment opportunities.
And finally, the third phase is our Impact Fund, designed to offer a one-time grant of $500 for individuals in our Zones who have experienced financial stress due to career transition. Criteria are being established so eligible Rotarians and Rotaractors can to apply for these grants. We will direct our members to the Zone Website for more information on that process and want to stress that these personal grants are a “hand-up” opportunity, not a “hand-out”.
