One of Rotary's areas of service is Vocation Service. As a Rotarian, how can you put these ideals into action? Consider these suggestions:
  • Talk about your profession in your club and take time to learn about fellow members’ occupations.
  • Use your skills and expertise to serve a community. 
  • Practice your profession with integrity and inspire others to behave ethically through your words and actions.
  • Help young people achieve their career goals. 
  • Guide and encourage others in their professional development.
These last two items are the reason for this email. District 5960 is looking to do just that for our Rotaractors, Rotex (former Youth Exchange students), and Young Rotarians (<35). We plan to have meet-up events throughout the year to bring mentors and mentees together through vocational and other interests.
Shawn Berry, District Public Image Team, and all-around Tech Master created the Upper Midwest Rotary website, and then added a page for this mentoring program. We are asking any Rotarians interested in being a mentor to opt in by creating a profile. See the link below. The confidential information will be used to pair you with potential mentees at these upcoming events. The events are just one opportunity to get involved. There are other, more informal ways to mentor such as going out for lunch or coffee. 
Think about the mentors in your life who took the time to help you on your journey. We accomplish nothing on our own but are helped along the way in both small and large ways. And we achieve so much more than we ever thought, because someone cared and took the time.  
Please consider giving your wisdom, your talent, your knowledge, your experience, and your time to help the next generation as a mentor.
