Job1 Launch

 

 

 

March 16, 2019 was the very first Job1 session, meeting with 10 clients at St. Jude’s Ranch, all of whom were anxious to get started.

The three-hour session was informative, lively and informal. Our goal is to equip young adults with tools and handy information to make the process of looking for a job a bit easier, less scary and definitely more accessible. If this first session is indicative, we have a hit on our hands! 

 

The Boys and Girls Clubs, as well as the Southern Nevada Housing Authority are interested in Job1. And, St. Jude’s wants to book another! The best part, all were engaged and expressed their confidence that they left with some valuable information.

 

Every attendee received comprehensive information in a bound  book and on a flash drive, both were theirs to take away. Computers were available for them to work while in session, and any work they did was saved on the flash drive for later use.

 

Spring Mountains Rotary Participates in Santa Clothes

Years ago, another local Rotary Club established a project called Santa Clothes. It started with about 30 kids,       and is now over 300! Rotarians from so many Las Vegas clubs and their friends meet at participating JC Penney locations to help underserved kids shop for themselves. Thanks to donations, each child gets a substantial amount to shop, with the fabulous help from Penney’s. They may not shop for siblings, parents, games, or anything other than clothes for themselves.

Reeta, one of our own, had the privilege of taking this young lady around for her shopping trip.

Afterwards, all the kids are taken to UNLV to enjoy a pizza lunch and hang with the athletic department.
