Avenues of Service

Rotarians categorise their efforts to give service into five main Avenues of Service. These are:

  • Club
  • Youth
  • Vocational
  • Community
  • International

These Avenues of Service remain central to the work of Rotary, ensuring that a Club’s service efforts are balanced and working to achieve all aspects of the Object of Rotary.

The Avenues of Service help Rotary Clubs remain focused on the main purpose of Rotary – Service Above Self.

Clubs set annual goals that address each avenue of service. District 9700 has leaders for each area.

Within the Avenue of Service to a Club (or Rotary in general), the operational needs of the Club and Rotary are normally addressed by six standing committees:

  • club administration,
  • club public relations,
  • membership,
  • service projects,
  • new generations
  • and The Rotary Foundation.
