It is that time once again to recruit students for the Rotary International Youth Exchange Program.  Rotary is seeking students between the ages of 15.5 and 18 on Sept 1, 2018, who might consider going on Rotary Youth exchange next school year.  We have excellent numbers of applicants and quality of applications from Burlington High Schools each year and this year the same looks to be reoccurring. 

Posters, flyers and application forms are being dropped off at all of Burlington high schools this week and presentations are being scheduled.

Those students who file completed applications with Student Services by Nov 3rd are invited with their parents to attend an information session November 9th at 7:00 PM at the Art Gallery Burlington.

Approximately 7000 students participate in this program each year living with host families and attending school.  Rotary believes that this is an opportunity to form international friendships, learn new ways to communicate, gain understanding and to promote world peace one student at a time.
