Five Avenues of Service

The foundation of club activity and its commitment to Service Above Self are divided into the Five Avenues of Service.

Club Service

Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs. Club Service is the portal to the District’s database of members and activities.

Vocational Service

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

Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.

International Service

International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the world and to promote world understanding and peace. It includes everything from:

  • Providing disaster aid in the United States, Peru, Haiti, etc.
  • Contributing to PolioPlus
  • Helping Rotary Youth Exchange students adjust to their host countries.

Youth Service

Youth Service, the newest avenue of service, recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities such as RYLARotaract and Interact club service projects, and creating international understanding with Rotary Youth Exchange.
