Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Boise ID

Total Budget: $12,100

Areas of Focus: Peacebuilding and conflict prevention, Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: To inspire 100 low-income students in Boise Idaho to graduate and seek post high school educations by providing them with life skills and building their self-confidence


The goal of Everyday Leadership is to inspire low-income fifth and sixth grade students to graduate and pursue post high school educations. Students who fail to graduate or achieve post-high school training are frequently unprepared for the workplace and are especially vulnerable to negative influences. They become a breeding ground for the social and economic issues being experienced in Treasure Valley communities. This is a serious problem.

Everyday Leadership seeks to build students' self-confidence and equip them with life skills including leadership, teamwork, communication, cooperation, conflict resolution, and decision making. Classes are taught by public school teachers and YMCA instructors. Rotarians lead discussions with the youth to hear what they are learning and how they are applying their new skills. Community service projects are implemented in neighborhoods near the schools. Activities occur throughout the school year.

This is a collaborative effort uniting the resources of

• Public schools provide teachers and counselors to serve as lead instructors and monitor results.

• Treasure Valley YMCA provides the class curriculum, facilities for events and an assistant instructor.

• Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Idaho provides student mentors as needed.

• Rotarians from the Boise Metro and Boise Sunrise Rotary Clubs facilitate collaboration; provide funding, provide physical labor as needed and monitor progress through regular discussions with the students and analysis of their performance outcomes.

This grant would implement Everyday Leadership at four low-income elementary schools, (Hillcrest, Garfield, Whitney, and Morley Nelson). Approximately 100 students would participate.

Everyday Leadership has proven to be highly effective. Grades have improved, behavioral problems have decreased and several students have applied for admission into accelerated learning programs.

In 2021, the program received the Leadership in Public Education Award from the Idaho Association of Public School Administrators.

Is your budget for the entire Everyday Leadership program or just Rotary's share of it? This grant should only be paying the Rotary clubs' share of the project. If the entire program costs are paid by Rotary with the "Y" as a collaborator to provide the infrastructure for the program, your spending plan could be more clear on this, as it currently suggests that the grant is paying "Y" portions of the instructor and by inference the FICA and other personnel costs. Please tidy up your spending plan to make it clear that you're budgeting the Rotary cost of the project and not including others' expenses in the budget that are unrelated to Rotary's share of Everyday Leadership. One way to do this would be to add a 3rd column showing total EL costs and the column that shows Rotary's share of it.

I noticed the error and sent it to the correct address, but the signature page is still waiting for a response from the incorrect address. How can I correct the error?

Your district grant project has been included in D5400's block grant application to The Rotary Foundation. It is not yet approved. Do not place orders or spend money on the project until you hear from the district that TRF has approved our block grant (likely sometime this month), as you cannot be reimbursed for expenses incurred prior to TRF approval.
