Rotary Youth Exchange

YOUTH EXCHANGE PROGRAM

Twelve monthes in a foreign country with board and accommodation provided by host families is offered by Rotary International District 9465. To be eligible, students must be over 16 and less than 18 years of age at the time of departure in January.
 
This is an education and cultural exchange and each student's principal purpose is to act as a "Youth Ambassador" for Australia.
 
Students gain first hand experience of different cultures and lifestyles and the opportunity to adapt to a new environment. At the same time, they inform their host community about the Australian way of life and help build the two key of objectives of the program of better international understanding and goodwill.
 
Travel expenses are paid by the student's parents, although financial constraints should not deter applicants for whom limited funding is available for those who meet the District criteria. 
 
Applications close on 31 March of each year for exchanges which will commence in January of the following year.  They should be submitted to your local Rotary Club or emailed to the Project Chair.
