THE 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. 
  • Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.
  • 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 such as RYLA , Rotaract  and Interact , service projects, and creating international understanding with Rotary Youth Exchange .
