Long-Term Exchange Program

The exchange student travels abroad and attends school in the host country for a full year. They will have opportunities to participate in camps, meetings, and trips.  They will be immersed in the language & culture of their host country.  The student ambassador will be hosted by a local Rotary Club who will supervise the one to three host families they will live with.

Rotary Clubs that are interested in sponsoring or hosting exchange students should email the Inbound Coordinator listed above.

Students that are interested in participating should download the Preliminary Application Outbound Youth Exchange Form attached and send it to the Outbound Coordinator listed above.
