AVENUES OF SERVICE
For years, Rotary’s commitment to Service Above Self
has been channeled through the four Avenues of
Service, which form the foundation of club activity.
Club Service focuses on strengthening of fellowship and
ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs. Funds
for social events are collected from members. No
donated funds are used for the benefit of members.
Vocational Service involves club members serving
others through their professions and aspiring to high
ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share
skills and expertise through their vocations, and they
inspire others in the process.
Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs
have to implement club projects and activities that
improve life in the local community. Read the Community Service Story
International Service encompasses efforts to expand
Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the world and to
promote world understanding and peace. It includes
everything the efforts of the PolioPlus campaign to
promoting literacy and health services worldwide.
Youth Service fosters the application of the tenants of
Rotary by sponsoring service projects with young
people of our community.
