Rotary Employment Partnership
Expanding the Team and Creating Jobs

 

The Rotary Employment Partnership is growing. Four new coordinators joined the Alberta partnership team in the past three months. These coordinators work directly with employers and employees with developmental disabilities to fill a variety of employer needs. Our employees work as drivers, warehouse workers, administrative assistants, customer service representatives and in many other roles.

 
 

 

 

 

Adult Literacy Committee
2020-2021 Interim Investment Report

 

This year, Rotary is funding Bow Valley College to pilot five half-day adult literacy workshops. These workshops will fill the gaps in foundational skills students need to support their learning. These skills include digital literacy, time management, self-advocacy, communication, critical/analytical skills, and a financial boot camp.

Rotary supports full and part-time students registered in a Basic Literacy program by providing 18 Adult Literacy Bursaries. The Adult Literacy Report includes letters from students and details of the workshops. See full details in the 2020/21 Interim Adult Literacy Report.

Rotary Club of Calgary Small Donations Committee
Supporting My First Bookshelf

 

My First Bookshelf, in partnership with Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, is a new Calgary Public Library program that delivers one free book by mail each month to children to age five. These books are theirs to keep forever.
 
The Library’s “Play Professor” will evaluate the program through community-based research on play and its impact on families and children. The research will span a number of years and provide focus on early learning strategies as the Library develops future services for families and children.
