"One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things."
We offer students from our district the opportunity to experience a long term or short term exchange program. Our students discover enrichment through education, culture diversities, and friendships. From Argentina to Thailand the Rotary youth exchange program opens doors to a world yet to be discovered. Outbound Youth Exchange application link will open on July 15th each year. The application link will close on November 1st each year.
Our Rotary clubs play a very important role in the youth exchange program. They have the opportunity to sponsor an outbound youth exchange student and/or host an inbound youth exchange student. The club enriches the lives of each student along with their local school and community.
Becoming a host family can be incredibly rewarding for any family, bringing an international experience into your home. Host families provide room & board and share daily life with the exchange student. Invite an exchange student into your family, community, and culture. Contact your local Rotary Club or the District's Youth Exchange Chair - Gretchen DiNardo - [email protected] for more information.
