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.

Simplified billing process gets positive reviews from club leaders
The single-page invoice that Rotary clubs received in January, which replaces a complex document they'd previously had to complete, is being cheered by many club officers. In the past, club secretaries had to fill out an eight-part semiannual report to calculate the amount their club owed Rotary International for membership dues, subscriptions, and outstanding balances. New members were written in, old members were crossed out, and many calculations were required before the club treasurer could pay the invoice. "Nobody wanted to do the semiannual report; it was confusing," says Gail...
How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
Why these Rotary members can’t stop attending conventions
Phyllis Jane Nusz, a past district governor from California, USA, attended her first Rotary International convention in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1997 as an incoming club president. "I have never stopped going since," she says. "It was amazing to see people for the first time from all over the world -- the different languages, dress, and food. But we all had the same dedication to Rotary. "I ran into so many people I never knew before but who today are still my friends, and I share Christmas cards with them, take part in club projects with them, join together for family activities, and so much...

Korean sailor makes waves for End Polio Now
Enjoying calm winds and peaceful Pacific waters, Seung Jin Kim dove off his 43-foot sailboat, the Arapani, to swim with some dolphins nearby. The serenity that day near the equator was a stark contrast to the 60 mph winds and 23-foot waves he had to fight around Cape Horn, the southern tip of South America. But Kim, a veteran sailor and member of the Rotary Club of Seokmun, in Chungcheongnam, Korea, expected such challenges when he set out in mid-October on a 25,600-mile journey around the world. In addition to fulfilling a lifelong dream, Kim is using the trip to raise awareness and funds...
