Avenues of Service

3 June 2017 396 views No Comment
The term "Avenues of Service" is frequently used in Rotary literature and information. 

The "Avenues" refer to the elements of the Object of Rotary: Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, International Service and Youth Service. 

Although the Avenues of Service are not found in any formal part of the constitutional documents of Rotary, the concept has been accepted as a means to describe the primary areas of Rotary activities.

1. "Club Service" involves all of the activities necessary for Rotarians to perform to make their club function successfully.

2. "Vocational Service" is a description of the opportunity each Rotarian has to represent the dignity and utility of one's vocation to the other members of the club.

3. "Community Service" pertains to those activities which Rotarians undertake to improve the quality of life in their community. It frequently involves assistance to youth, the aged, handicapped and others who look to Rotary as a source of hope for a better life.

4. "International Service" describes the many programs and activities which Rotarians undertake to advance international understanding, goodwill and peace. International Service projects are designed to meet humanitarian needs of people in many lands.

5. The Fifth Avenue, "Youth Service" recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults involved in leadership development activities, community and international service projects, and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding. Programs include Interact, Rotaract, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, Youth Exchange, Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment, Model United Nations Assembly.

When a Rotarian understands and travels down the "Avenues of Service," the Object of Rotary takes on even greater meaning.
