What is Vocational Service?

Vocational Service is one of Rotary’s Avenues of Service.  It is not only the focus of the second Object of Rotary but is the thread that runs the entire Object of Rotary.

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

  • First: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service
  • Second: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society
  • Third: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life
  • Fourth: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service

  • Connecting our professions and professional networks with our club activities
  • Using our expertise to address community problems and help others discover new vocational opportunities and interests
