Rotary’s Five Avenues of Service

 

Based on the Object of Rotary, the Five Avenues of Service are Rotary’s philosophical cornerstone and the foundation on which club activity is based:

 

 

CLUB SERVICE
Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club. This “Avenue” promotes the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service. It involves the activities necessary to make the Club function successfully and achieve its goals.


VOCATIONAL SERVICE
Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards. This area represents the opportunity that each Rotarian has to represent the dignity and utility of one’s vocation as an opportunity to serve society. Rotarians promote and foster high ethical standards in business and professions and promote the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations.


COMMUNITY SERVICE
Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community. This “Avenue” relates to the activities that Rotarians undertake to improve the quality of life in their community. Particular emphasis is given to helping children, needy families, the aged, the handicapped, and those most in need of assistance. Rotarians strive to promote the ideal of service in their personal, business, and community lives.


INTERNATIONAL SERVICE
International Service
encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace. In this area, Rotarians strive for the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service. International Service Projects are designed to meet the humanitarian needs of people in many lands, with particular emphasis on the most underprivileged children and families in developing countries.


YOUTH SERVICE
Youth 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.
