Building Future Rotarians and Our Community

Our grant is designed to develop local youth into future leaders while teaching them the value of community service and effective goal setting. Our grant will benefit two community organizations AVPride (Youth, www.avpride.org), Armed Forces Mission (Veterans, http://www.armedforcesmission.org) ,

  • suicide prevention training curriculum for AFM,
  • computers for AVPride.

The AVPRIDE students will "earn" the computers for their organization by volunteering at community service projects. They will also be asked to volunteer as helpers at the AFM “Push-Up Challenge” fundraising event. In addition, they will be required to attend suicide prevention training classes (the training that our Club’s grant money will help support).

Our Club will also support several of the AVPRIDE students to join the Sandy Creek High School Interact Club, which Fayette Daybreak sponsors. This will benefit the AVPRIDE students and will also encourage the Interact Club to join us in service projects.

Through these experiences, our goal is to help the AVPRIDE students learn leadership skills and the value of community service and cooperative/collaborative efforts. (In addition, they will be helping earn the computers that AVPRIDE desperately needs!). The computers will be used to create marketing materials and develop social media campaigns to promote both AFM. When these projects are completed, AVPRIDE will keep the computers for students to use for doing homework, etc.

We will be soliciting local businesses and other community partners for matching funds, as needed, to assist with our efforts.

Partner Involvement
AFM will provides trainers for the suicide prevention training. AVPride fund raising for AFM. Students gain community service skills.

Our grant is designed to develop local youth into future leaders while teaching them the value of community service and working to achieve goals. Our grant will benefit three community organizations AVPride (Youth, www.avpride.org), Armed Forces Mission (Veterans, http://www.armedforcesmission.org) and BASTAS (Seniors, http://www.cowetafayettefamilies.com/be-a-santa-to-a-senior-bastas/). AVPRIDE students will "earn": the computers for their organization by volunteering with Rotarians at the holiday gift-wrapping party hosted by BASTAS. They will also be asked to volunteer as helpers at the AFM “Push-Up Challenge” fundraising event. In addition, they will be required to attend suicide prevention training classes (the training that our Club’s grant money will help support). The computers will be used to create marketing materials and develop social media campaigns to promote both AFM and BASTAS. When these projects are completed, AVPRIDE will keep the computers for students to use for doing homework, etc. Funding from the grant will be used to buy: a) basic-need items for seniors (toothpaste, soap, deodorant, socks, blankets, etc.) to be donated to BASTAS; b) suicide prevention training curriculum for AFM; c) computers for AVPRIDE.
