International Village Clinic update

Dr. Abul Sharah will give us an update on the International Village Clinic, one of the projects our club has sponsored. You will hear how Abul took inspiration from Mother Theresa and has changed the lives of thousands because of his preventative nutrition programs so children won't go blind before they start school and  his curative programs so they can conquer diseases in one of the poorest parts of India.

Willl a "portfolio life" become your second half story?
Willl a "portfolio life" become your second half story?
Charles Handy, Irish economist, once described a “portfolio life” as, “A portfolio of activities – some we do for money, some for interest, some for pleasure, some for a cause…the different bits fit together to form a balanced whole…greater than the parts.”  George Dow's presentation will focus on how we can reshape our personal, professional and community lives in our second half. George will be making  frequent reference to the book,Portfolio Life, by David Corbett. Each of the five elements of Corbett’s model will be described, along with the inspirational stories that help convert the book's theories into achievable realities.  Here is a link to George’s blog that offers more details on these five portfolio life elements:http://georgedow.com/will-a-portfolio-life-become-your-second-half-story

Twin Cities Rise! Making a Difference In the Community

 

The mission of Twin Cities Rise! is to transform lives out of poverty through meaningful employment and create a community of empowered individuals, especially men of color, who achieve long term job success to support their families. Twin Cities Rise! assists individuals in poverty on the path to long-term and stable employment. Their work skills training prepares participants with the skills they’ll need on the job. And through internship opportunities, job search assistance, and employment placement services, TCR works with participants to find meaningful employment. Our coaches provide one-on-one support, partnering with participants for a year after they’ve landed their new jobs. They focus on long term results – with 81% of graduates staying at their jobs after one year, our 12-month job retention rates are nearly twice the national average.
