Vocational Service


The Object of Rotary is a philosophical statement of Rotary’s purpose and the responsibilities of Rotarians. The concept of vocational service is rooted in the second object, which calls on Rotarians to encourage and foster:

  • High ethical standards in business and professions

  • The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations

  • The dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society


We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity. Rotary's second Avenue of Service is Vocational Service which calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society.


As a Rotarian, some of the ways we can put these ideals into action is to …

  • Talk about your profession in your club, and take time to learn about fellow members’ occupations.

  • Use your skills and expertise to serve a community.

  • Practice your profession with integrity, and inspire others to behave ethically through your words and actions.

  • Help young people achieve their career goals.

  • Guide and encourage others in their professional development.
