Through Karrinyup Rotary, opportunity has knocked for Rotary around WA to be involved in a maternal and newborn child mental health project.  We invite Rotarians with relevant vocational skills and child health/health promotion experience (or simply committed to Rotary service in this area), and especially clubs in localities where existing Mother-Baby Nurture groups exist, to participate.
We are working to expedite this project and DGR arrangements before 30 June this year. If you are interested, and for more information, please contact us very soon.

Treemission is a Rotary tree planting program that has goals of informing Rotarians about what is happening in the environment, what they can do about it and deliver tree planting activities.
2024 Treemission tree planting event
This is the project and location:
Exciting times ahead in 2024 for treemission as we move to support restoration work on the Wungong River near Armadale. The State government has provided significant funding to ensure the Wungong River becomes a healthy river corridor for local wildlife, and for us to enjoy into the future.

Treemission has linked again with SERCUL this time to rehabilitate the river course. Matt Barbour, with SERCUL, will lead us for two days in July (20th and 21st) to plant a target of 3,000 plants per day (at least).
Each day starts at 0900hrs with a briefing, then morning tea at 1000hrs and a sausage sizzle at 1230.

Matt will provide planting equipment and plants (but I suggest you bring your favourite gloves and trowel), and Treemission and our Rotarians will cater for morning tea and a sausage sizzle.

You will need to bring personal items such as sunscreen, hats, boots, water and any other items you might think you will need including a chair? There are toilets located nearby at the shopping centre.
Register HERE to volunteer
Approximate location of planting is shown on the map below.

May is Rotary’s Youth Service Month! Throughout the month, Rotarians, Rotaractors, and younger members of the Rotary family, including Interactors and RYLA and Rotary Youth Exchange participants, celebrate the service, leadership development, connections, and FUN of Rotary’s programs for young leaders.
Every year, over 350,000 young leaders participate in Rotary’s youth programs across InteractRotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), and Rotary Youth Exchange. Rotary’s Youth Service Month is an opportunity to promote our young leaders’ local and global impacts and the Rotary and Rotaract clubs that make these programs possible.
Excited to celebrate? Here are four ways to participate:
  1. Partner with young leaders. Invite youth participants to your Rotary or Rotaract club meetings and together create opportunities for collaboration. Young people are looking for a way to make a difference. Show them how Rotary equips them to do so and join forces as you serve your shared community.
  1. Start your service-learning journey. Rotary’s approach to youth service, service-learning, is youth-led, hones life skills, and has a lasting impact on communities. Interactive courses and downloadable workbooks are available in Rotary’s Learning Center for adult advisers and youth participants ages 16 and older. Watch this informative video and get started on your service-learning journey today at rotary.org/learn.
  1. Attend a webinar. As part of the Cultivating Effective Projects webinar series, Rotary International is hosting a webinar on Thursday, 18 May at 18:00 (UTC-5) titled Expanding Reach: Partner with Youth in Service. Learn how to connect and collaborate with youth to increase the impact of your projects and develop youth into leaders.
  1. Follow along for youth-centered stories. Throughout the month of May, Rotary’s young leaders will be featured across multiple Rotary International platforms. Read the Rotary magazine feature about Interact’s 60th anniversary, subscribe to the Young Leaders in Action newsletter, visit Rotary’s blogs Service in Action and Rotary Voices each week, and follow Rotary’s social media channels to hear directly from youth participants about their Rotary experiences!
Share how you’re celebrating Rotary’s Youth Service Month on social media with #RotaryYouthService.
