EarlyAct FirstKnight® (or EAFK) is a groundbreaking character education program for elementary and middle schools from Knights of The Guild. Sponsored by Rotary Clubs, EAFK motivates and teaches children of all backgrounds to become civil, service-oriented people during their most formative years.
A few Rotarians will sometimes ask, “What business does Rotary have in character building?”. Herb Taylor, past Rotary International President and author of the Four Way Test once said, “I believe that the great opportunity and the great responsibility of Rotary rests in the field of building character, in the building of men.” People ultimately invest themselves in doing what is important to them, and service is a character virtue that must be engrained early to be appreciated. Simply stated, if service organizations like Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, etc. do not get involved with building character in children today, then there will be few people finding the time to join their ranks tomorrow. Think ahead.
