We, Rotarians work in this Five Avenues.


The term " Avenues of Service" is frequently used in Rotary literature and information.

The "Avenues" refer to the elements of the Object of Rotary: Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, International Service and the Fifth Avenue of New Generations.

Although the Avenues of Service are not found in any formal part of the constitutional documents of Rotary, the concept has been accepted as a means to describe the primary areas of Rotary activity.

1."#ClubService" involves all of the activities necessary for Rotarians to perform to make their club function successfully.

2." #VocationalService" is a description of the opportunity each Rotarian has to represent the dignity and utility of one's vocation to the other members of the club.

3." #CommunityService" pertains to those activities which Rotarians undertake to improve the quality of life in their community. It frequently involves assistance to youth, the aged, handicapped and others who look to Rotary as a source of hope for a better life.



4." #InternationalService" describes the many programs and activities which Rotarians undertake to advance international understanding, goodwill and peace. International Service projects are designed to meet humanitarian needs of people in many lands.

5.The Fifth Avenue, "#YouthService" recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults involved in leadership development activities, community and international service projects, and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding.
