Rotary Intl' Youth Exchange
Rotary International Youth Exchange
ROTARY DISTRICT 5110
Long-Term Exchange is for a school year (typically plus a couple of weeks either side of the term). The student is hosted and supervised by a Rotary Club, stays with at least 2 families, and must go to school while abroad. For ages 15 to 18 1⁄2.
Short-Term exchange is a home-to-home program. Typically, the US student goes abroad for July, and the partner student comes to your home in August. For ages 15-19.
For Long-Term, our current countries are Argentina, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Thailand. These will occasionally change. We ask the students for their preferences, and match wherever possible, but we make the final assignments based on our experience and knowledge of cultures and situations.
For Short-Term Exchange, more than 80 countries are certified for the Rotary program. The country selections are based on the studentʼs request and availability.
