Vocational Service calls on us to empower others by using our unique skills and expertise to address community needs and help others discover new professional opportunities and interests. January is Rotary’s Vocational Service Month, a great time to leverage vocational service in your club projects and activities.
Here are five ways you can incorporate vocational service in your club activities:
Host a club meeting at your work place and share about your profession; take time to learn about fellow members’ occupations.
Use your skills and expertise to serve a community.
Practice your profession with integrity, and inspire others to behave ethically through your words and actions.
Work with local businesses to create mentorship, internship, or practicum opportunities to help young people achieve their career goals.
Guide and encourage others in their professional development.
I recently read the book “Make your Bed” by Admiral William H McRaven
In this simple 10 chapter book he talks about how small changes can change the world but we cant do it alone, to me this fits in perfect with this year’s Rotary Theme, Rotary Connects the World, if you have the time please watch his 2014 Commencement Speech to the Graduates of the University Texas.
