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, Taiwan, Italy, Argentina, France, Sweden, Brazil, India, and Thailand are some of the countries that we exchange with.  Click on the following link for a complete listing -  Country Exchange List
