The word Mentor came from the Greeks and the French, but no matter how it got here: mentoring and the Rotary Club of Brighton (RCB) seem to be the perfect match!

***Rotary District 9800 Vocational Service Award Recognition 2018/19***

Mentoring is one of those activities that doesn't cost money, doesn't require lots of time, nor large groups of people, but it is good for everybody involved. And.... RCB mentoring services are very much in demand.
In 2019 we will be providing mentors to RMIT, Victoria Police and International Baccalaureate students.
Academia is not always the right path for every student and alternative career pathways are not always forthcoming, so Rotary, the local Secondary College and the Sandringham Yacht club made their own.  After consultation with Parents, educators and students, an 18 week program was designed to provide usable skills, hands-on training and employment opportunities for students from years 10 to 12.
 
A real team effort for vocational options are being provided with a new intiative from the Rotary Club of Brighton, Brighton Secondary College and Sandringham Yacht Club, providing new career pathways for local students.
 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Brighton Charitable Foundation has sponsored a training kitchen to be installed at Bayley House, Brighton.
Through fundraising and the generosity of a number of individual members, our club has donated a total of $50,000 to make this possible.

The kitchen will assist in making life better for the physically and intellectually disabled people who attend, or are residents, at Bayley House. The kitchen allows residents to learn skills in daily activities with the goal of independent living.
