What is Passport?
Welcome to the YEG Passport Rotary Club!
 
YEG Passport Rotary members are people in the greater Edmonton region who want to make a difference in their community in a way that fits within their time, talent and finances, as well as with their family, work and life commitments.
 
WHY WE CHOSE OUR NAME
 
YEG - We put YEG at the beginning of our name because we are proud to be from Edmonton and the surrounding area.
 
Passport - We put Passport in our name because we are part of a new trend in Rotary, and here's why:
 
a. We hold meetings once per month instead of once a week
b. Our members commit to doing 40 volunteer hours each year - but they can choose what they want to do, and do it on their own time
c. Our annual dues are less than $300 cdn. per year
 
Basically we offer a flexible way for you to spend your volunteer time, while at the same time giving you the opportunity to join our vibrant Rotary community.
 
Rotary
 
We all live by the core values of Rotary, and ask these questions before we take action:
 
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL & BETTER FRIENDSHIPS
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
 
Club
 
First of all, we love to have fun! And in our group you will meet people of all ages from all over the world who love to laugh, enjoy each other's company, challenge each other constructively and take action through volunteering.

Why Rotary?
Rotary International is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers, taking action to solve the world's problems, improve our local communities, empower and educate youth, all while making connections in the local community and the greater world.
 
You can't do this on your own.
 
Core to the success of Rotary International, this club, and all of our members, is participation in Rotary's Five Avenues of Service:
 

Club Service

We want to get together as a group monthly, exchange ideas and stories, network, and plan on how we'll tackle the other four avenues of service. To do this we need a functioning club with active volunteers to manage it.
 

Vocational Service

Vocational service is all about sharing your vocation and skillsets, whether you can provide some valuable pro bono work, mentorship, or just want to give an interesting "TED Talk" to a room of fellow Rotarians. It's also about improving yourself in your chosen vocation through stronger ethical practices, networking, and menteeship. 
 

Community Service

We aim to make Edmonton a better place through our own local service initiatives and in partnership with other Edmonton area Rotary clubs.
 

International Service

Rotary's greatest strength is our international connections. When you're a member you can literally travel anywhere in the world and find a Rotary club to visit and make new friends. This means there are also Rotary clubs everywhere around the world who are more than willing to partner on international projects.
 

Youth Services

We help create the young leaders of tomorrow through our partnerships with Interact and Rotaract clubs as well as other district youth service initiatives.
