How our Exchange works
As a Rotary Exchange student, you will spend one year living in another country, usually with three or four host families. You will become part of those families and their community.
These Rotary accredited families are volunteers who will welcome and care for you, supervise your year and introduce you to their culture and lifestyle.
In your host country you may learn another language, experience different foods, study different subjects, enjoy a new culture and enjoy a new way of living.
In addition you will learn a great deal about yourself and gain confidence and self sufficiency.
You will attend school in your local community, as well as participating in Rotary activities and civic functions.
At the same time you will make new friends, see exciting places and experience adventures that will take a lifetime to recount.
The Rotary Club of Myrtleford was the instigator of the 12 month youth exchange programme when it swapped students with the Rotary Club of Scotts-Bluff, Nebraska in 1959.
