The Opportunity of a Lifetime!

This year thousands of young people will have the opportunity of a lifetime; a chance to live in another country and see the world from a new perspective through Rotary Youth Exchange. You could be one of them!

Stay a Little or Stay a While

Rotary Youth Exchange offers the chance to be a part of either a short or a long term experience. During your exchange your board and accommodation are provided by host families, under the direction of Rotary International.

You’ll learn a new way of living, maybe even a new language, and a great deal about yourself.

Represent Your Country

In your host country you will experience different foods, study different subjects, enjoy a new culture and a new way of living.

As you’re learning, you’ll also be teaching the people you meet about your country, your culture, and your ideas. You’ll be a young ambassador, helping to bring the world closer together and making some good friends in the process.

Everyone says this but honestly it is true. It was the best year of my life. The family, friendships and memories that last a lifetime. Going from 40 degree heat to -15. It changes for your life for the better, it opens your eyes to the culture, way of life and to the world. If you get chance and take the challenge, you'll never regret it!
