Mentor Program
by John Davis

David Holman was our guest speaker at the meeting of July 14, 2011. We had two guests in attendance for a very informative presentation by Mr. Holman on how our club could become involved in a new initiative. This new program deals with the mentoring of individuals with disabilities in our community or even outside it. This new program is a joint venture of Provincial, Federal and Rotary participants working together in order to generate more opportunities for employment by those with mental or physical challenges. Many times the only thing holding these individuals back is a lack of confidence, lack of interview skills or even a lack of knowledge on the part of the potential employer. We have much to learn but this program is geared to teaching us and I think there was a genuine interest for a high level of participation from club members.
