People OF Action IN action - some local projects

BEAM - Brings Engagement and Meaning



CALL OUT FOR MENTORS to work with secondary students!

We are excited to be partnering with Rosebud Secondary College in a new school-based Youth Mentoring program to be introduced into the school. 


The program aims to develop trusting, supportive relationships between carefully selected and trained community volunteers with at-risk junior secondary students.


The volunteers will have a 1:1 hour-long session every week, with volunteers passing on life skills, building self esteem and personal development. 


Activities can involved just talking, playing cards, cooking, physical activities, art, music - or whatever the mentee student chooses .... as well as regular group sessions that focus on issues pertinent to the students involved.  

Partnership with Young Change Agents  (YCA) gets underway




Young Change Agents (YCA) empowers young people to identify problems in their community, reframing these as opportunities, and developing solutions with an entrepreneurial lens. The aim is to make it easy for schools and teachers to introduce and embed entrepreneurial learning and design thinking.


 After a huge amount of work behind the scenes to get this of the ground, the Club's partnership with YCA, with funding from the Victorian Government, is now almost up and running. YCA advertised to schools across the Peninsula calling for Expressions of Interest to be involved, resulting in a very positive response; this represents 358 students will be involved in programs.  It is hoped that some schools will be involved over the next three years, thus sustaining the benefits of the program for local students. 

People of Action give in a number of ways - their time to volunteer, their funds through fundraising efforts, and their support to assist others in need. 



That's called 'really making a difference'. 


Here's how our Club has responded to recent needs:  

The Russian Invasion of Ukraine - donation to Rotary's Shelter Box for emergency shelter and other emergency aid

The recent floods in Queensland and NSW - donations to BlazeAid, volunteer-based organisation that works with farmers and families in rural/regional Australia following disasters, and through RAWCS Australia (Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd)

Mental Health Research - Australian Rotary Health for a research project

Fight Parkinson's - supporting our member Judy and husband Ian

Scholarships for local people to access tertiary education to enable them to participate in the workforce - Caroline Chisholm Foundation (Chisholm Institute) 

Local Young People at Risk - Fusion Mornington Peninsula 

Polio Eradication for once and for all - Rotary's Polio Plus program

Student Mentoring Program - a new initiative with Rosebud Secondary College

Transport for Disabled Children - answering the call from Rotary District 9820.
