Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Summary: Dictionaries for Third Graders at 4 elementary schools in low-income areas of Fort Worth and one RYLA scholarship


Club members distribute free Rotary dictionaries to third-graders at Eastern Hills, Briscoe, East Hadley, and Van Zandt-Guinn Elementary schools. We deliver a 30- minute lesson on how to use the dictionary and especially its additional sections on national and international civics. 4-6 club members attend each of the four sessions. These schools are located in low-income neighborhoods where many children do not own a book and don't have internet access in their homes. Dictionaries are distributed once at each school and happen in the fall, winter, and occasionally in the spring. ($900)

RYLA scholarship recipient is selected by the Club in the spring and at least one club member serves as a RYLA counselor. Student is invited back to share experience with the Club in the fall. ($450)
