Since it’s inception, Red Rocks Rotary has focused on serving the needs of young people in the Verde Valley. Donations allow the group to continue funding countless projects and programs including:
Major sponsorship of Sedona Splash Park - opened in 2014 in West Sedona this year thanks in large part to the generocity of our club members.
Outgoing and incoming foreign exchange students – last year the group sent a Red Rock High School Sophomore to Austria for an exchange program.
Give Kids a Smile program – offers free dental care for underpriveleged West Sedona students. The Rotary Club has donated more than $80,000 in services.
Ongoing support for Rainbow Acres residents - Rainbow Acres is a home for the cognitively challenged that has some residents who have outlived their families and their resources and have no access to dental care.
The Rotary Club has donated more than $15,000 in cash to the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) – This 3 day camp for high school sophomores builds self-esteem, leadership skills and teamwork. More than 50 students from Sedona have participated in this program.
The Rotary Club prides itself on supporting our local schools. The “Teacher of the Year Program” rewards the Best Teachers in Sedona and encourages them to continue to be great role models for our youth. The Textbook Program provides hundreds of textbooks to the Oak Creek School District, and the club will provide thousands of dollars in scholarships for Red Rock High School students.
