About Vocational Training Teams

Vocational Training Teams (VTTs) build on the Rotary Foundation’s long-standing commitment to vocational training, first formalised with the establishment of the Group Study Exchange program.

VTTs take the concept of enabling young professionals to observe their profession in another country a step further by offering participants the opportunity to use their skills to help others.

Hands-on activities vary from one team to the next but may include training medical professionals on cardiac surgery and care, sharing best practices on early childhood education, or explaining new irrigation techniques to farmers.

A successful VTT increases the capacity of the host community to solve problems and improve the quality of life.

Vocational Training Teams bring together team members having a common interest or purpose - and allow them to support one or more of the 6 major areas of focus of the Rotary Foundation.

VTT teams are usually associated with a Rotary Foundation Grant and provide additional support and training. Teams can vary in size and also can have Rotarian members.
