Are you a high school student interested in making new friends, learning a new language, experiencing a new culture and foreign travel? Then the Rotary Youth Exchange program is for you. After a two-year covid-forced hiatus, during which Rotary International suspended the program, our club will endeavor to send out at least one student for the 2022-23 school year. Students need to be between 15.5 -18 years old by their departure date, August of 2022. All the information about the program is on the district website mountainandplainsrye.com, look under the applicant’s tab. Our club's Youth Exchange Officer is Patricia Kiernan; feel free to email her questions at kiernanpatricia6@gmail.com.
As we send out students, we also host a foreign student so he/she can learn about our culture, language, make friends and travel. If you are interested in hosting a student, please email Patricia Kiernan at kiernanpatricia6@gmail.com and also check out the district website at mountainandplainsrye.com for more information.
