Proposal Form

The Ibadan community assessment identified needs for teachers to have self-sustaining training in the skills and knowledge of School Counselor, able to:

- screen students for stress, anxiety and depression

- provide depression awareness train-the-trainer workshops for faculty, parents and students

- communicate the protocol for referral throughout the school community

This two year project (September 2022 through August 2024) will collaborate with the local university to enable full time working faculty to complete training in School Counseling on half-day Fridays and Saturdays for 40 weeks.

The beneficiaries are:

• About 500 students annually from 5 schools (100% of the students within one grade / standard will participate, typically age 14)

• Their parents

• About 50 faculty and staff from the 5 schools, including 20 teachers whom will earn a full year Certificate in School Counseling

• The local university, which will earn higher tuition revenue by providing courses during hours when working teachers can attend

Club members will be involved with tasks according to each member's skills and interests, including photography and articles. Examples:

- One member will be responsible for scheduling and communications with one of the five schools.

- At least one member will arrange and be present at every train-the-trainer workshop with faculty/peer mentors, parents and students.

- One member will be supervising the project administrator and communicating with the project consulting psychologist each month.

- One member will encourage mental health and wellness promotion in the district.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
