The Object of Rotary

 

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

  • FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • SECOND. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • THIRD. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
  • FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service. 

Rotary's Five Avenues of Service  

 

For years, Rotary’s commitment to "Service Above Self" has been channeled through the Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of club activity.   
  • Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club. Learn about effective club service in Membership  and Training .  
  • International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace. Rotarians can support International Service by sponsoring a project in another country, seeking international project partners to support projects in their own communities, or by personally volunteering at an international project site. Visit the ProjectLINK database to post a project in need of assistance, find projects to support, or learn about successfully completed projects to replicate.  
  • Youth Services (New Generations Service) recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities as RYLA , Rotaract  and Interact, service projects, and creating international understanding with Rotary Youth Exchange.
