“Looking at the Social and Emotional Development of Children: What we know and how it is impacted in Foster Children”

Introduced by: Michel Carter

All BBRC members are familiar with the adoption party BBRC puts on in the fall each year for foster children. Today’s speaker will help us understand the challenges foster children are faced with and how they can be helped.

Our speaker today, Rosanne Carter, will discuss the following issues:

“Understanding what we mean by social and emotional health and why it is so important. Babies and toddlers cannot exist by themselves. They need people close to them to help them in every way. How children think about themselves and others starts from the first day of life, and develops as they interact with their caregivers and others close to them.”

August is Membership Month!

Our Rotary membership allows us to enjoy these additional benefits:

Rotary Global Rewards, our member benefits program, which offers discounts on products and services. It’s Rotary’s way of helping our members spend less so they can do more.

The Rotary International Convention is our biggest event of the year. Rotary members from more than 130 countries meet at the convention each year to celebrate our successes and make plans for the future.  It is my hope that we can get a strong contingent from BBRC to attend next year, so we can demonstrate our club’s strength and fellowship in a dynamic city like Toronto.

Rotary Fellowships give members the chance to join a group of people who share similar interests, hobbies, or vocations. Some groups use their fellowship to make a positive difference.

Rotarian Action Groups unite Rotary members, family members, program participants and alumni who share their expertise in particular fields by collaborating with clubs and districts on projects.

I hope that you will take an opportunity to click on the links above and learn more about these benefits.  It is important that we find ways to enjoy the value that our membership can bring to us outside of the club. It will allow us to expand our relationships and build connections that can serve our objectives to do good in our communities and the world.
