Rotary Youth Exchange

As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you'll spend up to a year living with a few host families and attending school in a different country.
Whether you participate in Rotary's long-term or short-term Youth Exchange programs, you'll learn a new way of living, a great deal about yourself, and maybe even a new language. You'll also be an ambassador, teaching people you meet about your country, culture, and ideas. You can help bring the world closer - and make some good friends in the process.
More than 8,000 young people each year have experiences like these through Rotary Youth Exchange. It's the opportunity of a lifetime. Are you ready for it?
Find out what countries participate by contacting Rotarians or the Youth Exchange chair in your area.
