The Rotary Youth Exchange Program does not happen without your club's support.  Recruiting OUTBOUND ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE STUDENTS should be a continuous process for district Rotary clubs.  Suggested recruitment sources are school language teachers, Interact, RYLA, church groups, news promotions and your own club or family contacts.

Rotary clubs are asked to recruit students from their communities well in advance of their exchange year. In order to obtain exchanges for long term outbound students ages 15 1/2 to 18 1/2 , the district interviews occur each November for the next school year.  Long Term Applications for the 2018-19 school year are due to the district no later than Oct 30, 2017.

There are also some short term exchanges that occur during the summer.  One month of family to family visiting between and exchange student and a foreign host family with a student.  These exchanges are from ages 14-19.

Details about the Youth Exchange program are found in the left column of this page.  Under SITE PAGES, click on the ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE link.
