The purpose of Rotary International Service is to advance international understanding, goodwill and peace. The North St. Paul/Maplewood/Oakdale Rotary Club actively promotes these ideals by:
- Sponsoring in-coming and out-going exchange students between the ages of 16 and 18 in the Youth Exchange Program.
- Hosting Group Study Exchange programs for adult business/professional people.
- Contributing funds to club sponsored or Rotary District sponsored “World Community Service” projects (fresh water wells, medical supplies, schools, sanitation, etc.).
- Contributing annually to the Paul Harris Foundation which supports needy projects world wide and provides scholarships for college age student studying abroad.
