HOW IT WORKS
 
 
Similar to The Dictionary Project, clubs generally purchase a number of books, take them into their local schools and give them to the students. They also read the story and introduce them to Rotary.
 

Work with your local schools to decide the best way to implement the program and determine the quantity of items that you’ll need.

Most clubs take the program into the 2nd, 3rd or 4th grade levels.

 

Examples of Common Programs:

 

Example 1

Picture Book for each student and teacher

Bookmark for each student and teacher

Poster for each classroom, library, hallways, etc.

 

Example 2
