What does Rotary do?

Rotary is founded on principles developed over the years to provide members with a strong, common purpose and direction. They serve as a foundation for our relationships with each other and the action we take in the world.

The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise.

Avenues of Service

We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five 'Avenues of Service', which are the foundation of club activity. >>

Club Service

Focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.

Vocational Service

Calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society.

Community Service

Encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest.

International Service

Exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects, seeking partners abroad, and more.

Youth Service

Recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange
