Club Service
Club Service involves those activities that affect the smooth operation of the individual Rotary club. The Club Service chair oversees a number of committees in the club that are responsible for such functions as attendance, greeters, club bulletin, fellowship, membership, programs, public relations, remembrances, classifications, Rotary information, technology management, club directory, public relations, finance, and fund development. Club Service is the core of the local club and is dependent on its members to take charge of the various committees.
Club Service works to strengthen fellowship of members through training and hospitality.  Clubs have serious topics to work toward, so having various social events that brings together members and their guest informally and for fun, contributes to genuine fellowship.
Vocational Service
Vocational Service encourages members to serve other people through their vocations, education, skillsets, which encourages high ethical standards.
Vocational Service focuses on: 
  • Adherence to and promotion of the highest ethical standards in all occupations, including fair treatment of employers, employees, associates, competitors, and the public.
  • The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, not just those that are pursued by Rotarians.
  • The contribution of your vocational talents to solving the problems of society and meeting the needs of the community.
Each year we like to recognize and award for Community Service, Business of the Year, Employee of the Year, Harold Weaver Award, Outstanding Student & Teacher Award.

To briefly review our District's youth programs:

Interact is a Rotary sponsored club for ages 12 to 18, typically at a high school or middle school, although it is not limited to a single school. Rotary Club of Auburn sponsors the Interact Club at Placer High School. Interact clubs are also involved in community, campus and international service projects. Find Placer's Interact Club on campus or ask your counselor for more info!

Rotary Youth Exchange, or RYE is the leading international student exchange program in the world, and our District sends about 30 students out to foreign countries each year, and also hosts about 30 students from around the globe to spend a year of high school in our communities. Rotary Club of Auburn sponsors students for RYE. More info about Rotary Youth Exchange can be found here.
REGL, The purpose of REGL is a weekend camp, that provides high quality leadership training with a strong emphasis on ethics to selected 8th grade students who have demonstrated leadership skills. Our aim is to provide these selected students with tools for the difficult choices that they face as they move into high school. In teams of 5 students, selected by the principal of the school, they learn to work together, highlighting each ones strengths and weaknesses to create a successful project when they return to school. Rotary Club of Auburn sponsors several REGL candidates each year. More info about REGL can be found here.

RYLA, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, in our District, is a premium weeklong leadership camp for high school juniors offered in two sessions in June. We coordinate with District 5180 (Sacramento and surrounding areas) in RYLA to increase the diversity of the students participating in the camp. Every club in our District is encouraged to send at least one high school junior from their local community to benefit from the "life changing experience" offered at RYLA. Rotary Club of Auburn sponsors several RYLA candidates each year. More info about RYLA can be found here.

Youth Service also includes the many projects that individual clubs undertake to serve young people in our communities-such projects as the Dictionary Project, other reading and literacy projects, scholarship programs, and middle school projects, to name just a few.

Youth Service intersects the Vocational Avenue of Service in such programs as Career Coaching, Speech and Music Contests, and the Ethics Initiative.
