Vocational Service is one of the five Avenues of Service along with Club Service, Community Service, International Service and Youth Service.
Vocational Service is concerned with the knowledge, skills and talents each Rotarian possesses which are used to make a contribution. In this sense Vocational Service underpins the other avenues of service.
The skills each Rotarian brings to Rotary are critical and pivotal to the success of Rotarians as individuals and to Rotary as a whole. The skills are unique and can be acquired in a variety of ways – through professional background, through hobbies and interests, through community commitments, though general life experiences and through the time in Rotary. The skills are used to develop ethical projects and are shared with fellow Rotarians. The skills and how they are applied are Rotary’s greatest assets and the roots of the Rotary organisation are strengthened by a plethora of diverse and expert skills.
“Vocational Service is in all, because of all and for all. It is about placing vocational at the heart of everything that Rotary does.” (Debbie Hodge, President Rotary Great Britain & Ireland, 2018-19)
