Vocational Service is the way Rotary fosters and supports the application of the Ideal of Service to the pursuit of all vocations.

The objectives are:

  • To encourage and foster high ethical standards in business and professions, to recognise the worthiness of all useful occupations, to dignify the Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society.

  • To apply the ideal of service in personal, business and community life.

  • To advance international understanding and goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of
    businessmen and professional men and women united in the ideal of service.
