Making a World of Difference

As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you'll spend up to a year living with a few host families and attending school in a different country.

Whether you participate in Rotary's long-term or short-term Youth Exchange programs, you'll learn a new way of living, a great deal about yourself, and maybe even a new language. You'll also be an ambassador, teaching people you meet about your country, culture, and ideas. You can help bring the world closer - and make some good friends in the process.

More than 8,000 young people each year have experiences like these through Rotary Youth Exchange. It's the opportunity of a lifetime. Are you ready for it?

District 5710 Application Process:  Applicants should complete the "Student Application for Club Interview" available in the link to the left, and present it to their local Rotary Club.  The Rotary Club's Youth Exchange Committee will interview the student applicant and determine whether it wishes to forward the application on to the District for consideration in the progam.  If so, the student will be asked to complete the Rotary International Long Form Application, also available through the link to the left, which the Rotary Club will forward to the District Youth Exchange Officer.  District interviews are typically held in mid-December.

For more information, specific application and interview deadlines, and to find out what countries participate, contact District 5710 Youth Exchange Officer:
