Rotary International Youth Exchange Program

What is Rotary Youth Exchange?
Rotary Youth Exchange is a country-to-country exchange of high-school age young people who are between the ages of 15 and 19 years old when they arrive in the hosting country. (Some countries including the United States will not accept students who are more than 18 ½ years old when they arrive.) The exchange offers a cultural and educational experience for the student and those serving as hosts. The exchange lasts 10 to 12 months and follows either the American school year or the school year of the foreign country.
 
What is Rotary?
Rotary International, which sponsors this program, is an international volunteer organization comprised of Rotarians around the world dedicated to improving their community, both locally and globally, through service to others. We are Rotary International District 5650, consisting of 45 Rotary clubs representing eastern Nebraska and western Iowa.
 
Last school year, our District sent 13 students overseas and would like to send 15-20 students overseas in 2010-2011.
