Youth Exchange Students Sought to Promote Peace and Understanding

Now Accepting Applications for 2020-21

Applications are now being accepted from High School Sophomores to apply for Student Exchange through Rotary International to one of 200 countries for the 2020-2021 school year!  
Rotary Youth Exchange builds peace and understanding one young person at a time. Students learn a new language, discover another culture, and truly become global citizens. Long-term exchanges last a full academic year providing students the opportunity to attend local schools and live with multiple host families. We can empower our youth by speaking to them about becoming an exchange student and how it could change their lives and make them stand out in future opportunities, including on a college application. Since 1963, clubs in the local Rotary district have participated in International Youth Exchanges; well over 1,000 students have been hosted and sponsored, here and abroad. The 'Long Term' or Academic Year program lasts from 10-12 months,. the Short-Term Exchange Program is a family to family exchange that typically lasts 4 weeks in the Summer.
