Rotary Avenues of Service:
For years, Rotary’s commitment to Service Above Self has
been channeled through the Avenues of Service, which form
the foundation of club activity.
Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and
ensuring the effective functioning of the club. Learn about
effective club service in Membership and Training .
Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others
through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards. Observed each October, Vocational Service Month spotlights Rotary club projects related to this avenue,
offering opportunity for clubs and districts to use their
professional skills in service projects.
Community Service covers the projects and activities the
club undertakes to improve life in its community.
International Service encompasses actions taken to
expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and
to promote world understanding and peace. Rotarians can
support International Service by sponsoring a project in
another country, seeking international project partners to
support projects in their own communities, or by personally
volunteering at an international project site.
New Generations Service recognizes the positive
change implemented by youth and young adults through
leadership development activities as RYLA , Rotaract and
Interact , service projects, and creating international
understanding with Rotary Youth Exchange.
