Description:  Every year between 7,000 and 8,000 young people will have the opportunity of a lifetime — a chance to live in another country and see the world from an entirely new perspective through Rotary Youth Exchange.

As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you will spend a year living with host families and attending high school in a country other than your own. You will learn a new way of living, maybe even a new language, and a great deal about yourself.  As you are learning, you will also be teaching the people you meet about your country, your culture, and your ideas.  You will be a youth ambassador, helping to bring the world closer together and developing great friendships in the process.
If you are ready for the challenge and the rewards of living in another land as an exchange student, then you are ready to discover new worlds through Rotary Youth Exchange.
