January – Vocational Service Month.
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.
As a Rotarian, how can you put these ideals into action? Consider these suggestions: • Talk about your vocation in your club, and take time to learn about fellow members’ vocations. • Use your professional skills to serve a community. • Practice your profession with integrity, and inspire others to behave ethically through your own words and actions. • Help a young person achieve his or her career aspirations. • Guide and encourage others in their professional development.
If you do any of these things, you are performing vocational service. And if vocational service motivates and energizes you, then you’re in the right place, because vocational service is the very essence of Rotary. It is what sets Rotary apart from other service organization
