What is Rotary Local?
The Rincon Rotary Club, through the Rotary Local Program, is dedicated to helping teachers in our local area educate their students.  We do this through direct financial assistance when necessary, but in many cases, our network of business partners may be able to provide the necessary resources to help you achieve your project goals. 
 
In either case, we believe that you can identify your educational needs better than we can.  Be creative, and tell us how we can help you build a stronger community through education. But first, take a few minutes and read our guidelines listed below to help you get started.
 
We firmly believe that together we can build a better community. Thank you for applying, and good luck with your project.

The Rincon Rotary club is a fun, friendly group of men and women focused on  "doing good" for others.  Since 1968, we have served our community by supporting various youth programs, assisting the elderly, offering basic living essentials, and providing to those in need of food.

In addition, we have purchased essential medical supplies in Turkey, Mexico, and Africa.  We funded  teachers in Afghanistan and saved the life of Baby Fanny, born in Honduras with a hole in her heart. 

Our work in serving others will always be our passion!

We would love to welcome you into our club.  For information, please contact our Membership Chair.

 

 

 

The Vision of the Rotary Club of Rincon (Tucson)
is to be recognized by the community for our efforts to promote scholarship and citizenship as a friend of education; to direct and manage programs that involve youth, adults, families, seniors and those with disabilities; to provide assistance in skills training and on-the-job experience working with the Pima County JTED; and to involve all of our members in one or more of our variety of projects while striving to meet the Rotary International motto of

Service above Self

Dynamic young club uses social media to grow
Erin Mills had just finished teaching for the day in Montevideo, Uruguay, when her smartphone buzzed with a message. An impromptu gathering to watch Uruguay's World Cup soccer match was being organized. Through the power of a mobile messaging app, a majority of the Rotary Club of Plaza Matriz had soon assembled at a member's home to munch on baked goods and chips while rooting for their national team. That enthusiasm and ability to draw a crowd has made the club, which just received its charter in July, a success in the country's capital city. Made up almost entirely of young professionals,...

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country. With...
