Content Item - Vocational Service Plan 2014-15

Our vision is for Vocational Service to be a dynamic, respected club service division within District 9800, with multiple District programs, which create positive, lasting change in our clubs and our communities.

The 2014-15 Vocational Service Committee will be working with the District Leadership Team and Clubs to finalise a three year Strategic Plan which will develop Vocational Service as a sustainable, healthy club service division, at District and Club level.

With a focus on identifying, promoting and communicating successes, the key to the strategy development and execution is a strong, skills based Vocational Service Committee, rather than the traditional program leadership base, with focus on two key areas:

Build Vocational Service Appreciation - To promote and increase understanding of vocational service across the district and wider community.

Vocational Service Program Development - To identify, nurture and expand great programs from across the District in order to ensure sustainability.

The table below provides an overview of the projects and programs overseen by the Vocational Service Committee:
