There are several different avenues of service that members of the Rotary Club of Greater Clark County can participate in, including Club Service, Community Service, International Service, New Generations/Youth Service, and Vocational Service.

Club Service

As active members of their communities, Rotarians are often aware of local needs, priorities, culture, and resources that contribute to effective service projects. Effective service projects, however, require more than just an understanding of the community. They also depend on the club’s ability to effectively evaluate the community’s needs, plan relevant projects, and manage a project’s resources.

Vocational Service

Membership in Rotary is based on a member’s vocation, with each club striving to create a microcosm of its community’s business and professional world. This unique feature provides the source for Rotary’s historic commitment to vocational service, the second of Rotary’s four Avenues of Service.

Through vocational service, Rotarians are expected to adhere to and promote high ethical standards in all their business dealings, recognize the worthiness of all useful occupations, and contribute their professional expertise and skills to addressing societal problems and needs.
