The Rotary Club of Aruba is an association, which was founded on August 13th, 1938 and was formally admitted by Rotary International on August 29th, 1938.

The objective of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and in particular to encourage and foster:
- the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
- high ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of worthiness of all useful occupations and the dignifying by each Rotarian of his or her occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
- the application of the ideal of service by every Rotarian to their personal, business, and community life;
- the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

Rotary’s Five Avenues of Service are the philosophical and practical framework for the work of this Rotary Club.
1. Club Service, the first Avenue of Service, involves action a member should take within this club to help it function successfully.
2. Vocational Service, the second Avenue of Service, has the purpose of promoting high ethical standards in businesses and professions, recognizing the worthiness of all dignified occupations, and fostering the ideal of service in the pursuit of all vocations. The role of members includes conducting themselves and their businesses in accordance with Rotary’s principles and lending their vocational skills to club-developed projects in order to address the issues and needs of society.
3. Community Service, the third Avenue of Service, comprises varied efforts that members make, sometimes in conjunction with others, to improve the quality of life of those who live within this club’s locality or municipality.
4. International Service, the fourth Avenue of Service, comprises those activities that members do to advance international understanding, goodwill, and peace by fostering acquaintance with people of other countries, their cultures, customs, accomplishments, aspirations, and problems, through reading and correspondence and through cooperation in all club activities and projects designed to help people in other lands.
5. Youth Service, the fifth Avenue of Service, recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities, involvement in community and international service projects, and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding.
