Vocational Services

When professionals join a Rotary club, they do so as a representative of their particular business or profession. This gives Rotarians the dual responsibility of representing their vocation within the club and of exemplifying the ideals of Rotary within the workplace.

Vocational Services Committee builds opportunities within the club for members to engage with others, network, and build better business relationships for their business.

The Rotary Club of Etobicoke has overseen the mentoring project at Scarlett Heights Entrepreneurial Academy (SHEA).

Each Fall and Spring terms Grade 9 and Grade 11 Business students are required to form teams and create a For Profit Venture.
The Teams are to create products or services and  sell the products or services to SHEA students, staff and students that are invited from an adjacent public school on Venture Day. 

We the Rotary Club of Etobicoke, with a number of its seasoned business professionals provide mentoring, consulting advice to the Venture Teams as they develop their business plans, products or service offerings. 

Following Venture Day, top Grade 11 Venture Team is invited to a Rotary lunch at the Old Mill where their achievements are recognized. The top Grade 9 Venture Team receives movie passes and Rotary makes a donation to the SHEA Scholarship Fund.
