Committee: Vocational

Description: Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations, and they inspire others in the process. Our projects in the past have included annual scholarships for adult college students and support for adult literacy programs. 

Observed each October, Rotary International's Vocational Service Month spotlights Vocational Service club projects, offering an opportunity for all Rotary clubs and districts to use our professional skills in service projects.
