Applications Now Open for Short-Term International Exchange
 
High school students aged students from our district have the opportunity to travel abroad next summer as part of Rotary International’s family-to-family short-term exchange program (STEP). This simple, reciprocal exchange changes lives by giving young people an affordable, flexible means of experiencing another culture.
 
STEP also offers Rotary clubs an effective means of promoting international awareness and understanding among the young people in their communities.
 
STEP participants must be 15 to 18-1/2 years of age. Each applicant is matched with a student in the country of their choice. Once a match has been made and accepted by both students, their families can arrange travel to suit their schedules. In most cases, students spend three to five weeks in each country.
 
In recent years, students from Maine have chosen Japan, Turkey, England, Spain, France, Belgium and Italy from the more than 20 destinations available on the STEP program.
 
Rotary’s Eastern States Student Exchange (ESSEX) administers this program in collaboration with local clubs. Details are available on the ESSEX website: www.exchangestudent.org.
 
Candidates from District 7790 are encouraged to apply early for the widest choice of destinations and not later than March 1, 2019, to afford ample time for local processing before the ESSEX application deadline of May 1.
