The Club has continued to innovate as it has grown and Scarborough New Generations Committee is a precise example of that.
The Committee – the first in Australia – is a “new generation” of future Rotarians coming up through the Club, adopting newer ways of working and thinking. Comprising a mix of young professionals within the 25 to 40 year-old age bracket, this group operates flexibly to meet the needs of its members, and attracts female and males equally.
This younger group meets once a month in a convenient CBD location, to discuss projects, funding, events and other activities. The evening schedule is designed so that meetings can be held straight after work, and people from the wider Perth area (rather than just Scarborough) can take part.
The group is social; enjoying regular drinks at a bar, whilst getting to work to support projects addressing the important needs of youth, vulnerable people and communities abroad. They also regularly volunteer to support the operation of the Karrinyup  SwapMart, and arrange other fundraising activities such as Bunnings sausage sizzles and movie nights, whist maintaining strong links with the remainder of the Club.
Some of the organisations and projects the group has helped to fund since its inception in 2015 are Dress for Success Perth, Orange Sky Laundry, True Blue Dreaming, Manna, Indigenous Reading Project, The Trailblazer Foundation Cambodia, World Concern’s water filtration project in Myanmar and much, much more!
The group is always looking for new members who are keen to help the community, volunteer their time and be part of an exciting group that quickly takes action. If you’re interested in joining, or even learning more about the group, contact liaison Chris Schooling.
