Vocational Training Teams

Vocational Training Teams (VTTs) are groups of young professionals who travel abroad either to teach local professionals about a particular field or to learn more about their own.  In District 5150, VTT teams are funded by Global Grants sponsored by a particular Rotary club within the district.

VTTs build on The Rotary Foundation’s long-standing commitment to vocational training.  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.

Requirements for VTTs include:

  • Activities must align with one of Rotary’s six areas of focus, build the capacity of either the team members or the benefitting community, and have sustainable and measurable impact
  • The VTT must be sponsored by Rotary clubs from two countries.
  • Must require a minimum funding allocation of $30,000 to meet Global Grant requirements
