 YOUTH EXCHANGE

This program offers high school students (from both Rotarian and non-Rotarian families) the opportunity to live and study for up to 10 months in a country abroad.  Our District currently supports Youth Exchange  programs of up to one year in length.   Other Youth Exchange opportunities include short exchanges, that are usually several weeks in duration.  Both of these exchange programs are for students age 15 - 19.   A third option for New Generations Exchanges are programs for young adults, ages 18 - 25, which last up to three months.  Key to Youth Exchange is just that, "exchange."  This program specifically includes one "out bound" student who travels abroad while the sponsoring clubs welcomes and supports an "inbound student" into their community.
