The Rotary Club of Cochrane supports the Early Act Club. EarlyActâ„¢ provides elementary aged students the opportunity for gaining an increased awareness and knowledge of their community and the world. At a young age, all students can easily be encouraged to be caring and helpful. Their minds are open to recognize the dignity and worth of each individual which builds respect for others. EarlyActâ„¢ also engages students in character-building activities and prepares them for leadership roles to identify and carry out projects which benefit their school, local and global communities.
The EarlyAct club, at Glenbow Elementary school is now in its third year. Each year, the Grade 4 student leaders determine 3 main projects.
So far, they have established a tradition of making Christmas gifts and decorations, out of recycled materials, for the residents of a local care home. 
They have also participated in an annual 3km run fundraiser for charities empowering women and developed a garden where they have grown plants from seeds that attract pollinators. 
Other activities have included designing their own logo and writing their own version of the 4Way Test.
