Vocational Service

When professionals join a Rotary Club, they do so as a representative of their vocational classification – their particular business or profession.  Rotarians have the dual responsibility of representing their vocation within the Club and exemplifying the ideals of Rotary within the workplace.

Vocational Service calls every Rotarian to:

- Aspire to high ethical standards in their occupation

- Recognise the worthiness of all useful occupations

- Contribute their vocational talents to the problems and needs of society.

Group Study Exchange

The Annual Programs Fund of The Rotary Foundation makes provision for every District in the world to participate in the Group Study Exchange (GSE) program.

A Rotarian Team Leader and four non-Rotarian Team Members are selected to participate in an exchange to another District in another country to experience social, economic, business and cultural conditions and to observe their own professions in action.


GSE offers a unique opportunity to develop leadership skills, work on team building, and increase self-confidence. The program is designed to have an invaluable impact on the career of a young professional in the increasingly global workplace by creating networking opportunities and lifelong friendships.
