What We Do Locally

COLLEGE & VOCATIONAL SCHOLARSHIPS

Beaverton Rotary - Scholarships

Rotary financial aid and Club support help get students into and stay in school. Continuing Education for Young Parents (CEYP) students who have completed the CEYP program are also eligible for Vocational scholarships. Applications are screened and the candidates interviewed to select students and recommend to the Club and Foundation Boards. After review and approval of the Boards, the eligible students are awarded Rotary scholarships to Oregon schools or colleges. Scholarships are renewable based on student achievement. They know they have a club of Rotarians who believe in them and are cheering for their success.

DICTIONARY PROJECT

Beaverton Rotary - Dictionary ProjectContinuing Rotary’s goal to improve literacy, every year, Beaverton Rotary, in cooperation with   the Beaverton School District, provides over 3,000 personalized dictionaries to 4th graders in the 34 District elementary schools.

BOOKS FOR KIDS

Beaverton Rotary - Books for Kids

Many low-income families cannot afford to buy their children books. Rotary provides vouchers for deserving students to buy books at school Book Fairs held at Beaverton elementary schools. Rotarians help students select a book and write their names inside. First Book provides a personal book to each student attending a school with an extremely high poverty rate.

"I had a student who would not read. With Book Fair funds, we helped him buy a book. It was life-changing. I couldn’t get him to stop reading."

CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR YOUNG PARENTS (CEYP)

Beaverton Rotary - CEYP

Established in 1980, the program provides an alternative education in a supportive environment where pregnant students and school-age mothers and fathers can continue their education and prepare for the responsibilities of pregnancy and parenting. Their future and the future of their children depends on the successful completion of their education. Beaverton Rotary annually partners with the school district to provide renewable scholarships for these students to continue their education.

MEALS ON WHEELS

Meals on Wheels - LogoRotary volunteers deliver nutritious hot and cold meals to homebound seniors. Every Tuesday morning, rotating Beaverton Rotary driver/ navigator teams set out to a dozen or more approved residents who are physically limited or live in isolation. For some, it may be their only meal of the day.

  • Leadership fundamentals and ethics
  • Communication skills
  • Problem-solving
  • Conflict management

After seeing RYLA on the student’s job application, he was hired on the spot."

REBUILDING TOGETHER

Beaverton Rotary - Rebuilding Together

Each year, a volunteer team of Beaverton Rotarians gets together to come to the aid of a Washington County homeowner who is in serious financial trouble and can’t adequately maintain his or her residence. In a two-day effort, the team performs necessary maintenance work, such as outside painting, cleanup, and minor repairs. Combined with similar projects operated by other clubs and organizations, our project helps to make it possible for these homeowners to keep their homes.

ANNUAL WARM COATS PROJECT

Beaverton Rotary - Warm Coats Project

Operation Warm provides new winter coats to low-income families for the children in their communities. The Club identifies beneficiary organizations, typically local schools or youth services agencies, then buys coats in multiple sizes and colors at a discount and distributes them to children during the Fall. Rotary clubs have provided over 300,000 children all over the country with new winter coats.
