​Rotarians Needed To Make a Difference and Change Lives

The Thomasville Rotary Club has made a difference in the lives of Thomas Counties’ youth for many years. One of the many successful endeavors of the Thomasville Rotary Club has been Character Counts. Character Counts was created in 1992 and is the largest character development organization in the world.

Our Rotary Club has underwritten the cost of this character building program for many years. Our members volunteer to facilitate discussion sessions in four local schools and youth development organizations on the Six Pillars of Character which are taught as part of the organizations curriculum.

Six Pillars of Character:

  • Trustworthiness
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Fairness
  • Caring
  • Citizenship

Character Counts Centers of Influence

  • Boys and Girls Club
  • Vashti
  • Scott School
  • Community Resource Center


Two volunteers will facilitate Character Counts sessions in one of our organizations. The session lasts about 45 minutes. A great session is when the students carry most of the conversation and the volunteers have a chance to see the hope and joy of our future. Ideally it would be great for a volunteer to be willing to facilitate for six sessions or about 6 hours of service in 2020. Volunteers will be equipped with discussion materials and outlines before each class.
