The Youth Exchange program has been a part of Rotary's commitment to youth since 1938.  The program is one of many Rotary programs that provide educational opportunities for young persons, and it has the power to change the lives of those who participate.

District 7360 has a history of over 50 years of hosting and sending students around the world and boasts a well-seasoned district committee dedicated to making the exchange student year a memorable and successful life experience. Many of these volunteers have been exchange students, have traveled internationally or are internationals themselves and most have hosted students in their home. They all share the same passion - to provide students and families with an opportunity to grow and benefit through a cross-cultural living and study experience.

Whether you are an Inbound or Outbound student, a Host Family or Club Officer or member, we look forward to working with you to make this Rotary youth program a success in our communities.

 Long-Term and Short-Term Outbound Student Applications

Applications for Exchange Years are available on the Youth Exchange Program website  mid-September. All interested students must be sponsored by a local Rotary Club and should contact someone within a local club to confirm possible sponsorship.

All completed applications and materials are due by early to mid-November.  The link to  interview dates and calendar of mandatory events for the students, families and sponsoring clubs can be found below. Please mark them on your calendar now as attendance is mandatory for many of these events. Students will be given an interview time for the Interview Weekend once the application has been submitted and approved.
