Exchange Students
Salome - Belgium
An amazing opportunity
Currently our club is looking to sponsor a local student for an international academic exchange and host an international student for an academic exchange.  Contact our Youth Exchange Officer for more information.  
For the 2024-25 academic school year:
Are you between 15 and 18 years old and want to study abroad for an academic year?  Contact our Youth Exchange Officer for more information.   We will begin accepting applications in September 2023. Applications must be completed by November 18,2023.  District interviews are scheduled for Sunday, December 3, 2023 at DeSales University.
We also host one inbound exchange student who will attend a local high school.  Are you interested in being a host family?  Learn about another country and their culture while helping your family grow.
For the 2018-19 school year we hosted a student from Belgium.  She attended Wilson High School and lived with 2 different host families.  She was active in sports and took a strong course load of studies.  Her native language was French and she excelled in learning the English language during her exchange.
For the 2018-19 school year, we sponsored two outbound exchange students who took advantage of the opportunity to study abroad.  One went to Bolivia and the other the Czech Republic.  Both experienced many new things as they were immersed into another culture to learn language and life skills. 
Connecting students like this is just one small step in helping with international peace.  The friendships developed both with the natives in their host country as well as the other exchange students from around the world will create life-long friendships.  
District 7430 Rotary Youth Exchange
