This Toronto organization exists to help young offenders get out of the penal system, and into useful lives. As part of the Commitment, a young offender agrees to try and turn his/her life around with the help of PACT programs, plus a Life Coach. Rotary Club of Scarborough donated $4000.00 towards the cost of Life Coaching in this worthwhile and successful program.

Julie graduated from U.T.S., earned her B.A. in Political Science from the University of Waterloo, an M.B.A. from Western University, and attended Case Western Reserve University in 2004 to earn a Certificate in Appreciative Inquiry: Positive Business and Society Change. Julie has recently launched her own business, Nurse Next Door in Scarborough West. “Basically, we’ll do anything to keep seniors happy and healthy in their own homes.”
To quote Julie "My interest in Rotary originates from a desire to contribute to my own community. I admire the work Rotary has done and the causes it supports. At my first meeting, I particularly enjoyed the recognition of the work of Dr. Paul Caulford and his colleagues." Dr. Paul runs the Canadian Centre for Refugee and Immigrant Health Care on Shepard Avenue in Scarborough.
Welcome and congratulations

When the Rotary Club of Scarborough heard that there was a further need at the Depkor School in Ghana, we decided we could help. We have worked with Carol in the past, supplying meals for the very poor children who attend this school, and found out she is a 1 person organizing committee to help this school. In Ghana, Carol's good friend Linda receives any shipments, to make sure they go to the children who need them This time, the call was for running shoes and notebooks for their schoolwork. We collected 30 pair of slightly used running shoes, and 60 pair that are brand new! There were notebooks and pencils and pens, etc., so the kids don't have to just write their lessons in the sand. With a little bit of money added, Carol was able to get all this to the shipper right away, so we know the children will receive them shortly.
Just one small way that Rotary Serves Humanity!
