The Four-Way Test Followed by Rotarians worldwide in

their business and professional lives, The Four-Way Test

since been translated into more than 100 languages and is

used by organizations and individuals throughout the world.

Of the things we think, say or do

1) Is it the TRUTH ?

2) Is it FAIR to all concerned?

3) Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS ?

4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Rotary Friendship Exchange Rotarian teams or individuals,

who may be accompanied by their families, make reciprocal

visits to other countries, staying in each other's homes and

learning about different cultures firsthand.

Rotary Volunteers Rotarians and other skilled professionals

are provided opportunities to offer their services and experience

to local and international humanitarian projects.

students ages 15-19 who travel abroad for cultural exchanges

of one week to a full year; about 8,000 a year.

sponsor seminars to encourage and recognize leadership abilities

of youth and young adults ages 14-30.

planning service activities consider nine major needs or concerns:

Understanding and Goodwill, Literacy and Numeracy,

Population Issues, Poverty and Hunger, Preserve Planet Earth,

and Urban Concerns.
