Vocational Service is one of the founding principles of Rotary: that we know and understand the professions of others,and their role in society.  In turn, we use our knowledge and contacts to try to build skills and awareness in our young people.

The Rotary Club of St Andrews interprets Vocational Service

through visits to establishments such as The European Parliament,

and through activities and competitions to build competences, such

as public speaking, leadership, team building, sensitivity and

service to the community
