These Avenues of Service remain central to the work of Rotary, ensuring that a Club's service efforts are balanced and working to achieve all aspects of the Object of Rotary.
The Avenues of Service help Rotary Clubs remain focused on the main purpose of Rotary - Service Above Self.
Clubs set annual goals that address each avenue of service. District 9800 has leaders for each area.
Within the Avenue of Service to a Club (or Rotary in general), the operational needs of the Club and Rotary are normally addressed by five standing committees: club administration, club public relations, membership, service projects, and The Rotary Foundation.
