Rotary Minute:

Vocational Training teams-forging friendships, changing lives

Three countries, three Rotary clubs and forty-two years of membership is how Douglas would sum up his Rotary journey. Now settled in Ontario-Canada, it was his early start in Rotary, while in Scotland, when he developed his deep appreciation for Rotary’s vocational training program. An early contributor in creating the reference manual and systems to support Group Study exchange in his Rotary district, this program has now evolved into The Rotary Foundation Global Grant -Vocational Training Teams (VTT) model. It offers a hands-on approach to groups of professionals who travel either to learn more about their vocation or to teach local professionals about a particular field.
