Windsor Rotary has been sending students abroad and welcoming students from around the world since 1978. Many of their families come to visit and the students stay in touch and frequently return to see the friends they made during the exchange. Students learn a new language, discover another culture, and truly become global citizens.

"Exchange is not a year in life, but a life in a year," wrote Freya, our current outbound Rotary Exchange Student. Freya is building lasting friendships as she spends the school year in Belgium. Here at home our inbound student is Agustina , all the way from Argentina.

Rotarians and host families are giving them both as many local experiences as possible. Pictured with Agustina is Rotarian Les Reid. Together they decorated the Argentinian Catamaran giant pumpkin which she rowed in the Pumpkin Regatta shortly after she arrived here. Check back for more on the amazing experiences of these young ladies.

This is just one example of how the Rotary supports local youth…one Toonie at a time. More information at rotarytoonie.com
