Rotary Employment Partnership


Fellow Rotarian Wendy McDonald will be leading members through a network mapping activity.

One of our members, Paige Reeves and Wendy will speaking to our club about the Rotary Employment Partnership (REP). 

"Inclusion Alberta and Rotary Clubs work in partnership to:

  • Create real jobs -- Rotary Clubs and members will work in partnership with Inclusion Alberta and the Government of Alberta to develop jobs for people with developmental disabilities within the business community. Together we explore the possibility of creating genuine and meaningful employment opportunities. Inclusion Alberta and the Government of Alberta link employers to potential employees with developmental disabilities. Inclusion Alberta and the Government of Alberta also provide the resources, expertise and on-the-job supports to ensure a successful outcome. Through the partnership, employers and employees will learn how to sustain and facilitate the successful inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in the workforce. Each Rotary Club partner sets its own commitment as to how many people with developmental disabilities they would hope to see employed during the course of the partnership.  Individual Rotary members may also consider the possibility of creating an employment opportunity for a person with developmental disabilities. Through this initiative there is the potential for Rotary Clubs and members to directly and personally make a powerful and wonderful difference in the life of a person with developmental disabilities.
  • Share the dream -- Rotary Clubs, in partnership with Inclusion Alberta and the Government of Alberta, through their community involvement and commitment, promote the employment of people with developmental disabilities. The highly respected community voice of Rotary are coupled with the voices of families who have sons and daughters with developmental disabilities.  The community needs to learn more about the potential of people with developmental disabilities and the value of creating real jobs.  The partnership develops resource materials (e.g., print ads, posters, brochures, radio ads, etc.) to be shared with the business and broader community through a variety of media.  These collaboratively developed public awareness materials highlight Rotary Clubs’ commitment to the employment of people with developmental disabilities."

Thanks! GREAT Job!

Nelson Scott will speaking to our club about: "Improve retention, boost morale and increase engagement with high-value, low-cost staff recognition. Your resources— time and money—may be limited, but that doesn’t have to prevent you from recognizing staff in ways that they will value. There are simple, easy-to-use tools and techniques that you can use to acknowledge the contributions and achievements of staff, volunteers and others in your life."

Amarok Society

Gem Munro will speak about how Amarok Society provides education to the poorest children in the city slums of Bangladesh and Pakistan in a unique way; rather than opening schools for children, we teach their mothers. Each mother then becomes a neighbourhood teacher, allowing Amarok Society to economically reach far more children than with the traditional school model. In particular, Gem will speak to the social impact of education and the lives of the women who are transforming their communities.

Project Amigo

Project Amigo supports students from Colima, Mexico so that they can create their own educational opportunities and better their quality of life.

​To do this, we remove the financial barriers to education through scholarships that include school fees, transportation, uniforms and school supplies, and a hot lunch. Our staff also provide tutoring and mentoring during Project Amigo Homework Club. Homework Clubs also provide us with a way of keeping in close touch with the students so we can identify problems before they become so severe that the student is forced to drop out of school.

We also provide opportunities for volunteers from other countries to do valuable humanitarian service that creates and fosters friendship and understanding across cultures.

Education and literacy are powerful tools to create a brighter future for the world’s children who in turn benefit the nations they live in. Since 1984, Project Amigo has worked with rural youth in Mexico to continue their formal schooling including university level.

Project Amigo became a U.S. 501c3 non-profit charity in 1996, providing educational scholarships, material support, enrichment activities, and health care to disadvantaged youth in the state of Colima, Mexico.

Volunteer Work Weeks based at our headquarters in the beautiful hillside village of Cofradía de Suchitlán allow volunteers from other countries to engage in humanitarian service and become both friends and sponsors of Mexican youth seeking the many advantages of education.

The Stollery Women's Network

Brianne will be speaking to our club about the Stollery Women’s Network (SWN). SWN started in 2014 with a small group of women who wanted to advocate for the Stollery Children’s Hospital’s patients and their families. Today they have a network of over 550 and continue to raise awareness and funds for the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Their current fundraising efforts go to our Giving Comfort campaign, which provides comfort items, such as t-shirts, blankets, toiletry kits and colouring books for patients and their families in the Stollery’s emergency room. This is the first type of program of its kind within the Stollery’s ER and last year they were able to raise $267,000.

There are many ways to get involved with SWN, through volunteering at our educational booths, spreading our message on social media, attending our many fundraising events and of course donating to the Giving Comfort campaign.
