Club Motto – WE CARE
SCOPE – Social Activities
If you would like to become more involved in your community in a very enjoyable way, join your SCOPE Club
There are opportunities for meeting every month – business meetings, social meetings and action nights. Any woman over the age of 18 may join SCOPE. A common element among members is the desire to help others in the community; to broaden their knowledge; achieve personal growth; and enjoy the fellowship of SCOPE members. In fact, friendship is the basis of all SCOPE clubs.
SCOPE – A Club for Women
SCOPE is an all-Australian Women’s Community Service Club. Women of all ages and from all walks of life make up the membership. Women can join SCOPE for no other reason than simply to make new friends.
Among reasons for joining SCOPE are satisfaction of community service or the challenge of fund-raising – SCOPE members see fund-raising as a means of establishing a goal. Once a goal is set, fund-raising becomes fun-raising! A major reason for joining SCOPE is often the warmth of newly established friendships.
SCOPE – Objectives
- To provide a sense of purpose and self- fulfilment by helping to alleviate the suffering, the hardship, and the problems experienced by the underprivileged, handicapped and aged.
- To assist in the promotion of cultural and recreational activities by supporting reputable organisations and related community projects.
- To provide an opportunity for widening the SCOPE members’ understanding of self, the community and the world around us.
- To foster friendship among members, to develop individual growth and leadership qualities within the organisation and the community.
SCOPE – Personal Development
SCOPE members grow and learn as individuals. They become more aware of community needs and are better equipped to serve the community in an effective, caring way.
There’s an endless educational process and the opportunity to develop or expand individual skills as well as leadership training. But most rewarding of all are the new-found friends.
SCOPE – Caring for a Nation
Since SCOPE was formed in 1977, a significant amount of money has been donated to Australian charities through the club’s National Project scheme.
This is in addition to donations made within the local areas of each club.
SCOPE – Social Activities
One of the great joys of being a SCOPE member is the fun and exhilaration of a great variety of social activities, such as progressive dinners, family car rallies and barbecues, or any function where we can totally relax with our families, ensuring that being in a service club is not all hard work.
Many SCOPE Clubs have such a wide range of social activities that every member can feel involved. For many members, the social activities are a chance to learn new skills, especially when members decide to have a day playing sport, such as ten-pin bowling, tennis or golf.
SCOPE – Philosophy and Mission
To make community service more stimulating and rewarding in order to encourage greater participation and make it available to the widest possible cross-section of women in the Australian community as a lifetime experience.
SCOPE Mission Statement is to –
Encourage, Promote, Represent, Develop, Manage and Communicate.
