Are you interested in learning a new language or meeting new people?
Rotary Youth Exchange is the opportunity of a lifetime for more than 8,000 students who participate each year. By sharing your own culture and embracing a new one, you help foster global understanding and learn a great deal about yourself and your home country in the process.

What is a Rotary Youth Exchange?
Youth Exchange is a study-abroad opportunity for young people aged between 15 – 18 who spend a full year as an international student hosted by local Rotary Clubs.

Why choose a Rotary Exchange Programme?
Rotary is a well-known and respected global service organisation with over one million members so it is well suited to utilise this network of clubs and members that have a common service focus. It provides an excellent support structure.

Is an exchange right for you?
An exchange programme is right for people aged 15-18 who:

• Have demonstrated leadership in their school and community
• Are flexible and willing to try new things
• Are open to cultural differences
• Can serve as an ambassador for their own country
