Fellowship Meeting: Positive Messages Recap
During last Tuesdays meeting, we got together to do a "Positivity Campaign" around campus.  Rotaractors (is that how you spell it?) wrote fun and inspiring words on colorful post-its, which we then stuck around various buildings and rooms on campus.  We had so much fun spending time together, while spreading positivity to our BU community!

Rotaract Networking: Youth Day Recap

This is image of the paper airplanes that were created with Project Soar

On Saturday, March 24th Rotary hosted its 1st Annual Youth Day! Sarah, Rotaract Club President, and Jesse, Rotaract Club Liaison, participated in Project SOAR with follow Interact, Rotaract, and Rotary clubs and members from around Massachusetts. Project SOAR was established to set the new world record for the largest Paper Airplane. All participants at the event designed the best paper airplanes and had a competition to see who's would fly the furthest. Jesse came in the top 5! There was also a design and decoration competition as well, and Sarah took second place! The shape and designs of the winning airplanes will be used in the actually plane that will be created later on this summer. We also participated in a workshop hosted be Wesley High School Interact Club about Depression Prevention and Awareness. There was a lot to learn from them and we can use the knowledge for future service events and interactions.

Event: Improbable Players
Join us on April 3, 2018 from 7:00-9:00pm for an impactful experience from Improbable Players, which features a performance on opioid addiction and features an interactive talk back session to debrief what we experienced. The stories portrayed by Improbable Players are based off of real life experiences from the actors who are all in long term recovery. The performances showcase relatable details that simply cannot be generated by those who have not had these experiences.
According to SAMHSA's National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 22.5 million people (8.5 percent of the U.S. population) aged 12 or older needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol use problem and only 4.3 million (18.5 percent) received any treatment. The large number of individuals dealing with substance use disorders who lack adequate treatment indicates a great need for education on this issue so that us health care professionals are capable of supporting these individuals.
This experience will be incredibly impactful for the students who are preparing to enter to become health care professionals. This performance will provide a unique perspective from those who have entered the health care system with this condition, and share their struggles and successes of their providers. Through this profound performance, we develop a deeper understanding of our client’s perspective and life experience to ensure that we can be the most effective providers and positive supports within the community. 
We are grateful for the support and funding in part by the Social Impact Grant from the Boston University Arts Initiative!
This event is free of cost. More information here

Service Project: Fenway Green Team
Join us Saturday, April 14th at 12:00pm at Fenway as we work as part of Fenway's Poland Spring Green Team! This project involves picking up recyclables in the stands in between innings in an effort to keep Fenway clean and green. Volunteers will get a free T-shirt, a voucher for free food and drink, and get to watch a game for FREE! Volunteers only need to stay until the 7th inning, but are welcome to stay for the duration of the game. The Red Sox will be playing the Orioles, but no matter what team you're rooting for, all are welcome to join us! Please contact Jennast@bu.edu to sign up and for more information.
