Rotary Community Corps
A Rotary Community Corp (RCC) is a Rotary sponsored (meaning sanctioned on Club, District, and International levels) group of 10 or more local non-Rotarians with a spirit of service willing to work together under Rotary supervision to make a difference holding the belief that Rotary will enhance their success.
There are over 7,500 RCCs in over 80 countries, although only a small number exist in the United States. Projects vary: animal protection, water quality, hunger, education, and the needs of the disabled are only a few examples. The Rotary Club of Port St. Lucie, my club, sponsors a RCC, known as People Serious about Litter, committed to addressing the City’s litter problems. Members work intensely within a target area which serves as a laboratory to see how citizens, business, and government might cooperate to change the culture surrounding litter.
Under Rotary guidelines monthly leadership meetings and general group meetings are held and attended by a Rotarian. If you are interested in learning about sponsoring a RCC I encourage you to review the information available on line (search “Rotary Community Corps”) where you will find details concerning the nuts of bolts of the program.
Should your curiosity be aroused contact me for discussion and maybe arranging a program for your club.
