September is Basic Education and Literacy Month

 

More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. That is 17 percent of the world’s population.

 

 Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy. We support education for all children and literacy for children and adults.

 

 

 

 

Zone 26 & 27 News
A Zone Institute for zones 26 and 27 was recently concluded in Denver at the Denver Tech Center Marriott.  A “zone institute”, it is a gathering of the thirty districts that comprise the districts collectively known as Zone 26 and 27.
 
The purpose of a zone institute is that of preparing Governor-Elects, Governor-Elect Nominees, and Emerging Resource Leaders for their upcoming leadership roles.  In addition, there are educational sessions for District Membership Chairs, Public Relations/Public Image Chairs, District Trainers, International Service Chairs and Foundation Chairs.
 
After the training sessions have been completed, presentations by speakers on various topics are presented.  Some of topics at this institute included, “Start With Why”, “Telling Stories Through Photographs”, “Creating A Winning Team”, “Change the Label-Rewrite Your Story”.  In addition to the presentations, many opportunities for networking were made available with mixers, meals, and other social events.

Rotary Leadership Institute
By Linda Avery 
The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a Rotary program of training designed to strengthen Rotary clubs through quality leadership education.  This is intended for all Rotary members interested in potential leadership positions in Rotary.  District 5470 has elected to offer this training at no cost to membership, in the interest of developing as many future leaders in our clubs as possible. 
 
Training is in 3 parts, and upon graduation, you will also be certified to become a RLI facilitator and assist in future trainings.  Training in each section is a stand-alone, so you do not need to take them in sequence.  The District has been divided into quadrants, so it will be easier to have membership attend trainings local to them.  It is the intention of the District Training to have each quadrant offer at least one training in Part I, Part II and Part III each year – and locations will be determined upon request.
