Rotary FYI is partnering with the Memphis Grizzlies Mentoring Organization, The Giving Hour Organization and Grizzlies Affiliate Mentoring Organizations to help attract, train and assign mentors to assist selected youth who are struggling in school and elsewhere.
Our aim is to help the communities in District 6800 provide more mentors. Also assist with facilitating the development of additional Grizzlies Mentoring Affiliates in unsupported or under-supported communities.
In schools, Rotarian volunteers are encouraging superintendents and principals not only to continue striving for improvement in academics and school culture, but also to be intentional about embedding character, (including grit and passion), 21st Century skill sets, and leadership in the students.
Among many possible avenues of school assistance include Rotary readers, dictionaries for 3rd grade students, and other Rotary initiatives. An intervention process called “Leader In Me” is being introduced to school superintendents and principals.
