Vocational Service is the “Second Avenue of Service.”
No aspect of Rotary is more closely related to each member
than a personal commitment to represent one's vocation or
occupation to fellow Rotarians and to exemplify the characteristics
of high ethical standards and the dignity of work.
Programs of vocational service are those which seek to improve
business relations while improving the quality of trades, industry,
commerce and the professions. Rotarians understand that each
person makes a valuable contribution to a better society through
daily activities in a business or profession.
Vocational service is frequently demonstrated by offering young
people career guidance, occupational information and assistance
in making vocational choices. The Rotary Club of MOE recognize
the dignity of employment by honoring exemplary service of
individuals working in their communities.
The 4-Way Test and other ethical and laudable business philosophies
are often promoted among young people entering the world of work.
The Club is offering the following programs in Vocational Service
this year.
• Pride of Workmanship Awards- Schools (3825)
• Youth Programs – Ryla, Rypen, Muna
• John Flynn Scholar
• College Debates – Lowanna / Kurnia
• Vocational Excellence Awards - Businesses
• Vocational Talks – Club Members
• Citizen Awards – John Dwyer
• Volunteer Awards (3825).
Regardless of the ways that vocational service is expressed, it is the
banner by which Rotarians "recognize the worthiness of all useful
occupations" and demonstrate a commitment to "high ethical
standards in all businesses and professions."
That's why the Second Avenue of Service is fundamental to every
Rotary club.
