Expectations of STRIVE Students:
  • Attend monthly meetings.
  • Talk with your mentor as to the amount of communication/contact you’d like in addition to the monthly meetings and the best way to communicate.
  • Notify your counselor and your mentor if you cannot make a monthly meeting.
    • Up to two excused absences from the monthly meetings will be allowed. Students who miss more than two monthly meetings are no longer eligible for a scholarship; however, they are welcome to continue with the program (if their mentor is willing) and can attend the end of year celebration.
    • An attendance award of $100 can be earned by attending all of the monthly meetings and the celebration. If you have an excused absence from a monthly meeting, you can make it up by spending at least one hour with your mentor before the next monthly meeting. A maximum of two make-ups will be allowed.
  • Attend a Rotary meeting. Your mentor or meeting coordinator can help you make arrangements. There are three meeting times each week, so we hope that you can make it to at least one meeting over the course of the year. Learn more about our clubs online at www.rochesterrotaryclubs.org
