THE FOUR – WAY TEST:

In 1932 Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor created the Four-way test. This is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. Rotarians recite it at Club meetings.
 
Of the things we think, say or do
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
 

AVENUES OF SERVICE:

 We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of service, which are the foundation of club activity.
 
  • Club service focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.
  • Vocational service calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society.
  • Community service encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest.
  • International service exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects, seeking partners abroad.
  • Youth service recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards and Rotary Youth exchange.
