Vocational Service

“Discovering vocation does not mean scrambling toward some prize just beyond my reach but accepting the treasure of true self I already possess.” ― Thomas Merton

At the LVSWR, we believe we have a dual responsibility of representing our vocation within the club and exemplifying the ideals of Rotary within the workplace. Here are some of our vocational activities:

Dan Stover Music Competition – A contest for high school musicians to compete for a $5,000 first place scholarship.
Teen Leadership Camp (TLC) – The Club sponsors elementary school students to attend a leadership training program.
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) – The Club sponsors high school junior students to attend a leadership training program.
