Youth Exchange Program



Are you intrigued by the idea of spending one year residing in another country?  Are you fascinated by the prospect of living with another family and learning about a new culture?  Do you enjoy meeting new friends with diverse backgrounds, sampling unique dishes, and experiencing adventures and numerous opportunities for growth? 


If so, you may be interested in the Rotary International Youth Exchange Program.  Rotary is an organization of business and professional men and women united worldwide, who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and countries and geographic areas, with approximately 1.2 million members.


Candidates for Rotary Youth Exchange must be between the ages of 15-19 at the time of departure (summer, 2012), and be a freshman, sophomore, junior or senior in high school at the time of application.  Students can NOT have turned 19 prior to the time of exchange.  Note: Some countries have age restrictions and may not accept older students.  Older students (18 and older) will have limited country choices.
