Outbound Youth Exchange


The Outbound Youth Exchange (long-term) student will experience a life changing year abroad. As a student you must be willing to try new things and embrace a new culture. You will become an ambassador for the Rotary Youth Exchange program, created to build goodwill and make better friendships across the world.  


Spain, Japan, Chile, Switzerland, Tawain, Italy, Argentina, France, Sweden, Brazil, India, and Thailand are some of the countries that we exchange with 2018-19 Country Exchange List.

The Rotary Youth Exchange Scholarship is sponsored by a local Rotary Club and valued at over $24,000.  The Outbound Rotary Youth Exchange student spends a year aboard receiving tuition, room and board with a monthly stipend FREE! Apply for this opportunity through the Rotary Youth Exchange Outbound application. The application is open from May 15th - October 15th each year, with interviews in mid November. Students are selected based  on their completed application and an interview process. Please contact the district's outbound chair or any of our district's country officers with any questions.
