Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville Rotary Club donates $1,000 to the LEAP Organization to support their various youth enrichment programs. LEAP, which stands for Leadership, Enlightenment, Achievement, and Perseverance, is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to instill positive moral growth and sustainable life skills in youth.
What would it take to change the world? Rotary’s 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to Service Above Self. In more than 34,000 clubs worldwide, you’ll find members volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.
“Rotary creates the perfect venue for me to give back to the community I live in while enjoying the camaraderie of positive and active individuals.” Commented Rotary President Dan Dickerson
“Rotary provides an environment for developing strong friendships and business relationships,” said Richard Garrett, Executive Director of the LEAP Organization. “Rotary is a tremendous network. Leaders in the community can connect and reach out to people in need.”
Rotary has identified specific causes to target to maximize our local and global impact. At the same time, we understand that each community has its own unique needs and concerns. Through our network of resources and partners, we help clubs focus their service efforts in promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies.
Our impact starts with our members—people who work tirelessly with their clubs to solve some of our communities’ toughest challenges. Their efforts are supported by Rotary International, our member association, and The Rotary Foundation, which turns generous donations into grants that fund the work of our members and partners around the world. Rotary is led by our members—responsible leaders who help to carry forward our organization’s mission and values in their elected roles.
LEAP is a nonprofit youth development organization that provides mentoring, counseling, career readiness, tutoring, community service learning opportunities, and other enriching programs. Their vision is to implement sustainable programs that equip and empower youth with the knowledge and resources they need to improve their decision making to lead healthy, productive lives.
