We will focus on successful, sustainable local projects benefiting members of our own communities, with financial help from international partnerships and the Rotary Foundation.  While all concepts presented at STEPS in previous years have applied to projects abroad and at home, at STEPS 2015, we will showcase exciting projects benefiting our part of the world!


This cutting edge day will provide you the tools and connections for starting new projects and partnerships both in your own back yard and globally.  Our Keynote speakers will inspire you to discover terrific opportunities to break the cycles of poverty (economic,  educational,  health…)  in our own communities.  Our breakout  speakers will emphasize the importance of needs assessment, the planning process, and discuss proven strategies for successful projects.   Attendees will leave with the inspiration and ability to help guide their own Rotary clubs to initiate, plan and implement sustainable community-based projects.

Please note that the Foundation Gala will be held the prior evening at the Reagan Library which is located near Cal Lutheran!  Registration for each event will be separate, although we hope that you can come for both.
