District 5050's Rotary Clubs sponsor students to many countries around the world and provide them a life changing experience. Rotary Youth Exchange students will spend up to a year living with a few host families and attending school in a different country.
Students will learn a new way of living, a great deal about themselves, and maybe even a new language. They will also be an ambassador, teaching people they meet about our country, culture, and ideas. They 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!
If you are interested in becoming a Rotary Youth Exchange student, or are interested in hosting an exchange student in your home, contact a Rotary Club in your community and visit the District 5050 website. Students must be between the age of 15 and 17, six months prior to August departure.
