Rotary Minute

Are you looking for ways to promote Rotary on your website, Facebook and Twitter?  One way to get Rotary’s message out to the masses is through video!  Short & effective videos can say more about Rotary in 60 seconds than an ordinary person could say in 15 minutes.  Videos are relevant and can make others think and act.  They are powerful tools and Rotary International want you to use them…for free!

Did you know that Rotary International has YouTube and Vimeo channels full of great videos…hundreds of them, covering just about every issue a Rotarian may be wondering about.

Featured Segment

Teach For America is growing the movement of leaders who work to ensure that kids growing up in poverty get an excellent education.  Today, poverty limits educational opportunity – but it doesn’t have to be that way.  Although 16 million American children face the extra challenges of poverty, an increasing body of evidence shows that they can achieve at the highest levels.

Take a look at the Teach for America Flyer for more information on the program.  If you would like more information about what we do, click Here.
