Mentorship & Mocktails Mixer

Join us for mocktails and find your mentor or mentee!

We will be enjoying mocktails (non-alcoholic cocktails) while mingling with Rotarians as potential mentors. Rotaractors and Rotarians will participate in a speed-dating type of event where each gives their elevator pitches to see which Rotarian would be the best fit as their mentor.

Rotaractors will then be able to submit their preferences for who they would like to be their mentor. Matched mentors and mentees will then meet in person at least once per month with call checkins as needed.

Rotaractors can benefit from the Rotarians by receiving career and life advice, being held accountable for their goals,and being able to connect with a Santa Cruz professional. The Rotarians can benefit by gaining a millennial’s perspective, being able to share what it is like to be a Rotarian, and knowing that they are making a direct positive impact on a young person’s life.

Business casual attire is encouraged.

Beach Clean up and Picnic

We will be doing a beach cleanup with Save our Shores at Davenport Beach, just up Highway 1. It is one of Save our Shores' new Xstream cleanups which target areas with intense trash and sites that can be challenging at remote locations including caves, beaches, rivers and inland dump sites.

Volunteers should wear sturdy footwear with hiking boots or similar recommended as the beach is only accessible via a rocky slope (not too steep). It is also good if volunteers can wear old clothes as you might get dirty and bring their own, preferably thick gloves.

Make sure you bring a filled reusable water bottle, sunglasses and a hat as well. We want to make sure everyone is staying hydrated!

After the beach clean up we will have a Picnic Potluck! Please bring items you wish to share with the rest of the group. Don't worry if you can't bring something, your company is plenty! Sign up to bring items here

We will meet in the Quarry by the parking lot for the Bay Tree Bookstore at UCSC at 8:30am on Sunday Oct. 4, 2015. The picnic will be at 11am, after the cleanup portion ends. 

Please email us at if you would like to attend!
