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 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

  • 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

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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

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

  • All professions – providing work

    experience for school children

  • Catering – encourage Young Chef etc
