The Rotary Club of Thomasville Rotarians participated in Character Counts teaching character to the youth in our community. Our Rotarians use their vocational skills to share their viewpoints on the topics of Kindness, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship, Trustworthiness, and Respectfulness to the children of the Boys and Girls Club, Community Resource Center, Vashti, and Scott Elementary School.

In the past, The Rotary Club of Thomasville served Five sites. They were:
The Boys and Girls Club- our focus was on serving those who most especially needed to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.
The Community Resource Center - which was funded by citizens concerned with the disparity of health-related preventable services, educational enrichment opportunities, and economic challenges that faced the underserved and minority populations in our community.
Scott Elementary - This group t benefited from the awesome Character Counts talks and we have even received thank you and additional requests for this program due to the results of the programs given by our Rotarians.
The Vashti Center- works with children and youth who have come from family trauma and upheaval and provides treatment and support for mental health services.
Update: Due to COVID-19 Schools for more than four months. When they reopened educators focused on getting students caught up on their academic courses. The only School which allowed Rotarians to work with children was Harper School. Rotarians were able to present via Google Chat dialoguing with Children. The Children were elated! Great Character-building!
