Community and vocational service

Community and Vocational Service

  • In line with Rotary international there has been a split of the C&V team in RIBI to separate teams.

  • This was to boost Vocational Service as one of the main “Avenues of Service”

  • Each District and Club has the choice whether to follow suit or remain with a combined team.

  • This District has decided to remain

    combined at present, but will split next year

Vocational service1

Vocational Service

  • Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their professions and to practice high ethical standards.

  • Rotarians share skills and expertise through their vocations and inspire others in the process.

  • We will cover options for this later on.


The four way test

The Four-Way Test

  • This was developed as an ethical guide to follow in business matters.

  • It was expanded in 1989 to become the Declaration of Rotarians in Businesses and Professions.

  • This promoted using vocation as an opportunity to serve the community

    and to provide opportunities for

    young people.


Ethical business practices

Ethical Business Practices

These have been recently summarised in Forbes Magazine:

  • Use honest language

  • Insist on proper behaviour

  • Refuse to allow grey areas.

    Summary in RI publication:

    “Introduction to Vocational Service.”


Vocational service and classification

Vocational Service and Classification

  • From the beginning of the Rotary movement the Classification of each Rotarian has been important.

  • Rotarians each have a “Classification” ie Profession or vocation, which means clubs have a cross section of the community.

  • Through their jobs and business and professional skills Rotarians have

    opportunity to serve the community.


Classification and skills

Classification and Skills

  • Does your club have each Rotarian listed with his or her Classification? If not can I suggest this is raised with the President.

  • Does your club have a skills/affiliations inventory of its members?

  • This is also useful as it may find school governors, and links with other

    organisations who complement Rotary.


Vocational service suggestions

Vocational Service - Suggestions

  • October is Vocational Service Month – Get New Vocational Project started or have a Vocational focused meeting.

  • Say “The 4 Way Test” at each Meeting.

  • Volunteer for Secondary School Career day or conduct Mock Interviews

  • Conduct “Job Talks” at your club and

    invite Ambassadorial Scholars to talk

    about their jobs and training.


Vocational projects

Vocational Projects

Using members Job Classification to assist in the community ie:

  • Doctors and Nurses – helping at blood pressure testing

  • Engineers & Scientists – encourage schools to take part in Rotary - Excitement of Science
