Vocational Service is a description of the opportunities each Rotarian has to represent to fellow members the dignity and usefulness of his or her occupation. It also encompasses the obligations of each Rotarian to foster in his or her occupation the adoption and practice of high ethical standards and the dignifying of all useful occupations.


Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)
The RYLA camp - which
helps develop leaders by providing the opportunity for young 18-25 year old people to refine skills, explore pertinent topics with their peers and elders and share valuable expertise - was held in July 2014 at Nunyara, Belair and our Club was very happy to sponsor two young people from the Rotaract Club of Adelaide City who attended the six days' experience.

The 2014 RYLA Celebratory Dinner was co-hosted by our Club and the Rotary Club of Adelaide at the Belair Country Club. The evening's entertainment was a wonderful showcase for these inspiring young people.


Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN)
Our Club sponsored two students to attend the RYPEN weekend at the Nunyara Conference Centre from 11-13 April 2014. 
RYPEN is a fun-packed learning experience for 14-17 year olds at a dynamic weekend residential camp. It provides the opportunity to interact with like-minded individuals and experience a weekend of learning activities and new friendships. For many awardees the camp is not just training, it is their first experience in communal living with people from other who may have different ideas and beliefs. This was another very successful weekend, and special thanks must go to the organisers.


The Rotaract Club of Adelaide City continues to grow and is now over 12 months old. Membership has grown to 31 members and the Club has now found a permanent meeting place and this is at the General Havelock Hotel, Hutt Street in the city.

Meetings start at 6.00pm and everyone is encouraged to drop in to their meetings. John Karran has been especially supportive of the Rotaract Club in its formative stage and attends many of their meetings.
The Rotaractors were once again very supportive and hands-on at our Club's fundraising event - the Latin American Fiesta held in March 2014.


Vocational Visits

This year we had a visit to the Adelaide Metropolitan Fire Station, which was preceded with breakfast at the Mylka Cafe in Flinders Street. Those who attended found the visit very interesting and informative.
