Vocational Service is one of Rotary’s Avenues of Service. 

Vocational Service calls every Rotarian to:

  • Aspire to high ethical standards in their  occupation;
  • Recognize the worthiness of all useful  occupations, and;
  • Contribute their vocational talents to the problems and needs of society.

Rotarians, clubs, and districts should implement the following strategies in their support of Vocational Service:

  • Strengthen the emphasis on vocation and classification in new member recruitment and induction.
  • Identify means of emphasizing vocation in club activities.
  • Create a stronger emphasis on business networking with integrity in Rotary at the club and district level.
  • Focus more attention on business networking with integrity as a means of attracting and mentoring the new generation.
  • Emphasize the connection between the Four Way Test and the Rotary Code of Conduct (formerly called: Declaration of Rotarians in Business and Professions) and their importance to the values of Rotary.
 
The Pageant of the Arts is a combination of four competitions for high school students in the areas of art, dance, music, and speech.
