Dear Rotarians,


Across the world, we are all experiencing an unprecedented moment in history. As a community of peace fellows, we wanted to help connect the Rotary Family by offering on-line programming to share our work and some of the skills we acquired, in part, because of the support of Rotarians like you.

Recognising that your Rotary club may not be meeting in person for the foreseeable future, the Rotary Peace Fellowship Alumni Association has created a database of presenters who are willing to provide interactive talks, webinars and lead virtual town hall discussions for your members.

  1. Check out the new Rotary Peace Fellow Facilitator Database: Here you can browse the profiles of peace fellows who can facilitate sessions on a variety of subjects including COVID-19 response, professional and personal development, and other topics we hope your members will find especially meaningful in this trying time.
  2. For help with using the database, please see these instructions – and let us know if you need more guidance.
  3. To request a club speaker or facilitator, please fill out this short request form. If the specific speaker you requested is not available, we will make all efforts to connect you with someone who can fulfill your request.
  4. We ask that each club also complete a feedback survey after your session so we can continue to build a service that will last long after the current crisis has passed.

For questions or direct feedback please write to RI staff member, Bill Rintz, at william.rintz@rotary.org. Thank you!

*Please note that while most alumni are happy to provide a club program as a volunteer, for many this programming represents their professional livelihood. If your club wishes to engage a Peace Fellow beyond a club presentation, in more in-depth programming, please consider a discussion about fees.

We look forward to connecting with you!
