WHAT IS A ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE?
Rotary has been organising youth exchanges for over 60 years, providing incredible opportunities for young people to see the world, experience a different way of life, maybe learn another language, make international friends and discover a lot about themselves whilst acting as an ambassador for their own country.
Parents and guardians can be assured that Rotary is committed to maintaining a safe environment through policies designed to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all participants in the programmes.
Each year, worldwide, over 8000 young people enjoy the experience of a lifetime through Rotary Youth Exchange. Will this be your year to travel on an amazing voyage of self discovery and change your life forever.
