The Rotary Works Initiative

Rotary Works is a new and special vocational initiative created and designed for Rotarians and Rotaractors within Zones 33 & 34 who are experiencing career transition.  This initiative is comprised of three distinct programs that will provide education, networking, and/or financial resources for participants and facilitate mentorship opportunities for personal and professional development. 

The Rotary Works Programs

The first Rotary Works program to launch will be a Career Development Professional Series offered monthly via Zoom. at the same time (12:00/01:00 p.m.) Starting December 2020, on the second Wednesday of each month at 12:00 p.m. (EST) / 01:00 p.m. (AST), there will be consistent opportunities to collaborate with business professionals in career development, to exchange ideas and to have conversations with experts in various fields. These “mentors” (from both inside and outside of Rotary) will provide information and inspiration for those in attendance seeking self-exploration, self-improvement and ultimately seeking employment or viable entrepreneurial prospects. Monthly topics will vary from direct, self-help conversations to hands-on skill development processes and each month professionals will be available to discuss specific topics with attendees. The program kicks off on 09th December 2020 at 12:00/01:00 p.m. with an overview of the series, where exactly how “Rotary Works” operates and how it will support our members will be outlined and discussed. Additional sessions and topics under this program include the following:
  • January 13th
 - Vocation, Evaluation, and Opportunities
  • February 10th
 - Building Your Personal Brand
  • March 10th
 - Essential Tech Tools for Marketability
  • April 14th
 - So You Want to be Your Own Boss?
  • May 12th
 - Roadblocks to Avoid on your Road to Success 
The second program – Zone Job Board – will launch in sometime in April/May 2020 and serve as a resource where users will be able to search for employment opportunities, post open positions, request a mentor, become a mentor, and find valuable and relevant career transition resources.
Finally, the third program establishes an Impact Fund which is designed to assist Rotarians and Rotaractors in Zones 33 and 34 who may have experienced financial stress due to career transition. It provides such individuals an opportunity to apply for a one-time grant of US$500. Criteria are currently being established so that eligible Rotarians and Rotaractors can to apply for these personal grants that are to serve as a “hand-up” and not a “hand-out”.
More information on each of these programs and how they work will be available after the first of the year via the Zone website. Additional information will be also provided each month via the Rotary Works Newsletter (view/download 1st edition), as well as, on the Zone's DACdb calendar where you can register for various events.
