Youth Exchange

Youth Exchange

Rotary Youth Exchange students spend up to a year living with a few host families and attending school in a different country.

Whether students participate in Rotary’s long-term or short-term Youth Exchange programs, they will learn a new way of living, a great deal about themselves, and maybe even a new language. They will also be a Rotary ambassador, teaching people they meet about their home country, culture, and ideas. Exchange students 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.
