Lee Dueringer President of the Rotary Vocational Fund was our speaker on Thursday. Lee is a Rotary member of the E club of the Southwest.  He provided information on the Vocational Fund which gives grants of up to $3,000 to students in college level vocational programs.  
The mission statement of The Rotary Vocational Fund of Arizona, Inc. (TRVFA) is, to partner with Rotary Clubs to provide assistance to Qualified Candidates in obtaining education, training, and skill development so they may, in turn, attain career oriented employment and financial stability, and contribute to their communities.   
What a great program - helping students prepare for the real world by providing a "hand up, not a hand out."
