Rotary Club of Glen Waverley

What we do

 

Our president, 2017 - 2018, Louis Jahshan bids a hearty welcome to the Rotary Club of Glen Waverley

Louis' challenges for his year as president are to find new high quality members for the club and to boost fund raising to support our many causes.

Whether you want to find out about what Rotary does, would be interesting in community service through Rotary or are a potential visiting Rotarian we hope you will find the site interesting.

We are a large and thriving club but always keen to hear from community-minded professionals who want to make a difference.

A Rotary club exists to provide community service. It is a ‘put in’ organization. Members find satisfaction in service to the community and greatly enjoy the company of like minded people.

‘Community’ in the Rotary Club of Glen Waverley (RCGW) includes support for the local City of Monash community as well as a range of international projects in developing countries.

RCGW also contributes to Rotary International’s worldwide initiative to eradicate polio in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

  

RCGW has a strong track record towards helping youth. Thus we strongly support such Initiatives as ‘Rotary Youth Leadership Awards’, ‘Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment’ and ‘Model United Nations Assembly’.

We are active in sponsoring international youth exchanges for the purpose of personal development and cultural understanding.

 

RCGW is to offer an award of 'Community Police Officer of the Year'. This is in partnership with the local police superintendent.

The award offers a substantial prize to that police member whose contribution is held to be an outstanding within community policing in the local area.

Victoria Police has a strong commitment to its members taking part in the local community. RCGW is a strong supporter of the local police. The new award represents a an attractive collaboration for both sides.

RCGW has a strong social program, which involves excursions out, restaurant functions and visits to the theatre.

RCGW like any Rotary club is an organisation for people with community service in their DNA. We also love having fun!
