District EarlyAct Assembly
January 12, 2013, JolliBee, Blue Wave, Pasay City - Rotary Club of Malate Prime headed by Peacebuilder President Yasuhiro Ishiyama hosted this year's District EarlyAct Assembly at JolliBee Restaurant, Blue Wave, Pasay City.
The mission of EarlyAct™ is to promote goodwill, understanding and peace through the active participation of its student members so that with committed citizenship and effective leadership they may improve the quality of life of their school, local and global communities. EarlyAct teaches caring, respect, empathy, responsibility, tolerance, citizenship, compassion, friendship and leadership.
EarlyAct™ is a school-wide service club for elementary students from ages 5 to 13. It is sponsored by one of the local Rotary clubs in the township in which the school is located.
The mission and operation of EarlyAct™ are closely linked to the ideals of Rotary and provide the foundation and natural succession into Interact. EarlyAct™ provides young students the opportunity for gaining an increased awareness and knowledge of their community and the world.
At a young age, all students can easily be encouraged to be caring and helpful. Their minds are open to recognize the dignity and worth of each individual which builds respect for others. EarlyAct™ also promotes understanding and the building of friendships among the club members.
EarlyAct™ also engages students in character-building activities and prepares them for leadership roles to identify and carry out projects which benefit their school, local and global communities.
