International Service exemplifies the global reach of Rotary in promoting peace and understanding and encompasses efforts to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the world.
The Rotary Club of Eaglehawk supports this avenue of service by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects (e.g. East Timor & PNG), seeking partners abroad (Sister Club, Jomtien Pattaya RC, Thailand), contributing to eliminating polio throughout the world (Polio Plus) and in ‘giving an advantage to the disadvantaged through education’ via our own Rotary Orphan Student Education (R.O.S.E.) Program.
The Rotary Youth Program is aimed at giving young people an opportunity to develop their own potential, personal development, social skills, community service, leadership qualities and teaching of important values, in areas such as responsibility, compassion, respect and tolerance, via a range of numerous and exciting projects.
Rotary Youth offers a range of programs for all ages, from Primary School age, through to Secondary school and to young adults from 18-30.
The role of the Club Service Committee is to organise the day to day running of the Rotary Club of Eaglehawk.
Maintain involvement with programs such as Australia Day Breakfast, Eaglehawk Dahlia & Arts Festival, and ANZAC Day. The Community Service Committee explores options to identify humanitarian needs in Eaglehawk and plan for action on those considered in most need.
Vocational Service has three core elements that run through everything we do.
Locally we support business excellence through involvement with the Business Excellence Awards, deliver a vocational guidance program to Eaglehawk Secondary College and continue workplace visits.
The Rotary Foundation transforms our gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, with very low overheads, it is supported by the global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio worldwide and promoting peace. The application of Foundation grants is designed to empower Rotarians through implementing lasting solutions to challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition.
Fellowship gives Rotarians the opportunity to socialize with family and friends, as well as other rotarians.
We have events such as Christmas in July, BBQ's, Harness Racing nights, pub meals etc. Partaking in working bees is also part of fellowship, it gives us the opportunity to meet with people from other clubs and groups,
The Fundraising Committee coordinates the fundraising activities for the club and investigates new fundraising ideas and opportunities.
