Often we Rotarians

prefer to focus on smaller club projects that we can complete in an afternoon or a Saturday morning.  We jump in, solve a problem, and then we're focusing on the next small project.

But other times, we identify a big challenge and decide to take a deep breath, roll up our sleeves and become People of Action. The new project brings us to a table surrounded by community leaders and visionaries. Slowly, this becomes your club's signature project. The sustained impact on your community becomes a game changer.

In 2016, I challenged my club to build entrepreneurship in our community. We knew two things: we had no idea where to begin and we couldn't do all this work by ourselves. After confirming with local entrepreneurs that they would truly benefit from our support, we started by inviting a team of community leaders together. Just like a pot luck dinner, every community partner brought something special to the table. The result has been amazing and we have now graduated almost 100 entrepreneurs in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.  See their faces and learn more on our website. Rotarians in Detroit, Michigan originally designed this model called LaunchDETROIT.

Editor's note: These introductory comments are taken from a Rotary International Website where the reader can find the complete article.
