Rotary Exchange Program

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” -Neale Donald Walsch

So you want to be a Rotary Exchange Student!

We don’t blame you. Keep watching this site. Every fall Rotary volunteers visit local high schools for info sessions with students. Watch for posters or ask your counselor – or check out our 'Important Dates' section! Just – DO IT! We then have a “student parent interview night” in October. This is followed by an interview process where we look for a qualified candidate ready for the opportunity of a life time! Is this you? We hope so!
The two Rotary Clubs in Lloydminster, Alberta look forward to meeting you.
Note: If you are NOT from the Lloydminster area, chances are a Rotary Club near you is doing the exact same thing – contact them! Google your town/city name and “Rotary Club”.

This year (Subject to change) our District is exchanging with these countries

Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Czech Rep., Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan,Thailand
There are only two clubs in Lloydminster that participate in the program. The two clubs work together in the outbound student selection process. In September we will choose one outstanding individual that has what it takes to be a Rotary Youth Exchange Student. Is that you?

A bit about the program

As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you’ll spend up to a year living with a few host families and attending school in a different country. Where ever you reside, you’ll learn a new way of living, a great deal about yourself, a new language. You’ll also be an ambassador, teaching people you meet about your country, culture, and ideas. You can help bring the world closer – and make some good friends in the process. More than 8,000 young people each year have experiences like these through Rotary Youth Exchange. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime. Are you ready for it? The two Lloydminster Clubs work together to find three outbound exchange students in fall, 2014. These “outbounds” (as we like to call them!) will depart in the summer of 2015, and return summer 2016. (Typically the school year) In September 2014 we will choose outstanding individuals that have what it takes to be a Rotary Youth Exchange Student. Is that you?
