Group Study Exchange

A Rotary Foundation Program

                       

 

Since 1965, the Group Study Exchange (GSE) program has provided inspiring vocational, educational, and cultural experiences for more than 70,000 men and women. This unique program targets young business and professional men and women between the ages of 25 & 40 in their initial years of professional life. 

 

The Rotary Foundation provides travel grants for teams of participants to exchange visits between paired areas in different countries. For four to six weeks, team members study the host country’s institutions and ways of life, observe their own vocations as practiced abroad, develop personal and professional relationships, and exchange ideas.

 

 

 
 
CCN dinner 10-12

Through the Avenue of Community Service, our club supports the efforts of the non-profit organization Colfax Community Network.  Colfax Community Network advocates for and works on behalf of children and families residing in low-income, transient housing (primarily residential motels) along Colfax Avenue by providing information, services and programs to strengthen and improve family and community life.  On the 4th Thursday of the month, CCN hosts a Family Night to help families living in Colfax motels feel connected to a caring community. Frequently, speakers are invited to talk about new programs and resources. Always, there are door prizes, games, good food and friendship.  Through out the year AFRC supports the CCN's efforts by stocking the food pantry, providing personal hygiene products and sponsoring a Family Night.

More than 6,000 Rotary members in 154 countries reported on their experiences with the new grant model as part of an evaluation during the 2015-16 Rotary year.

Among the key findings: 90 percent of respondents support the grant model; 86 percent see it as an improvement over the former model.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
