GSRP Weekend

GRSP Leadership Conference

Hosted by the Rotary Club of Dunwoody

In partnership with the Rotary clubs of Brookhaven, North Atlanta, Buckhead, and Atlanta

Thanks to the valiant efforts of Louise Barden and her legions of volunteers, we as a Club once again had a very successful gathering approximately fifty 2016-2017 GRSP students from 17 Countries came in from all across Georgia. A big thank you to the Rotary Clubs of Brookhaven, North Atlanta, Buckhead and Atlanta for their partnership and fellowship over the weekend. Also to the Rotaract Club of Atlanta for their contributions.

Beginning Friday the 13th the students toured the National Center for Civil & Human Rights. Chris McNaboe was the guest speaker from the Carter Center who works in the conflict resolution program. During the tour many students remarked that they hadn't realized the power of a peaceful protest.

On Saturday (01/14/17) the students were brought to the very charming and beautiful Oglethorpe University. Larry Hart taught them the art of having "Fierce Conversations". A fairly common remark from many students was that conversation is what makes the relationship.

The students worked in assembly line fashion and prepared 10,000+ meals for distribution by Stop Hunger Now. Many of the students liked having the opportunity to do a service project, and expressed amazement that with just an hour of work by the group, they could feed 10,000+ people.

A big thank you goes out to the Brumfield’s, Stout’s and the Stipick’s for the lovely dinner(s) for the students and host families on Saturday night.

On Sunday they participated in the "Shark Tank" event which was put on by the Atlanta Rotaract Club.

The GRSP students were divided into 5 teams that were each given a chance to plan a non profit, and compete for a mythical $10,000 seed grant. When the dust settled, first place honors went to the winning team that proposed knitting sweaters as a way to help raise money for refugees.
