The Rotary Club of St. Francisville & other community volunteers proudly take part in Junior Achievement each year. These volunteers teach children about work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills. We donate finances as well as our time to the children of the elementary classes grades 3-5. We use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential!
If you would like to participate in this worthwhile endeavor please contact us.
Did you know that approximately 7,000 kids drop out of school EVERY DAY in the U.S.???!
That's why the Rotary Club of St. Francisville recently spent 2 days at West Feliciana Middle school talking to 8th grade students about CHOICES.
The mission of CHOICES Education Group is to empower students with vital tools that will increase their career and life opportunities. Getting involved with CHOICES is one of the most effective and powerful ways to help with this education crisis.
Through interactive skits & presentations Rotary members walk students through real life scenarios involving everyday choices large & small that can have lifelong impacts.
Litter is not only a breeding ground for many germs and pathogens, but also pollutes rivers, creeks, lakes, and streams. Litter also causes reduced property value and can cause traffic accidents. Rotarians go out and braved the heat to pick up litter along the West Feliciana Parish roadways.
We are so very proud of our Rotarians for taking part in the Reader Leader program. Rotarians meet with an assigned student to read once a week for the duration of the school year. Additionally, the Rotary Club donated funds to buy book for the students to take home for the summer.

End Polio Now
Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.
Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 30 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.
Rotary members and The Rotary Foundation play a unique role in disaster recovery and rebuilding efforts. Working closely with our partner ShelterBox and other organizations that specialize in disaster relief, Rotary members lead projects to support every phase of a community's recovery.
