Would you like to travel or live abroad?

Some 7000 students annually participate in the Rotary International Youth Exchange Program, truly an affordable opportunity. As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you will spend anywhere from a few weeks in the summer to a full academic year living with a host family overseas. You may learn a new language; you will experience life in another country and a lot about yourself.

Interested students and parents are invited to learn more about the 2020 exchange opportunities such as long-term exchanges that last for an academic year, during which the student lives with more than one host family and attends school in the host country; short-term exchanges where the student lives with a host family overseas who has a teen your age and then he/she will come to your home and stay with your family for a few weeks (or reverse order); and international summer youth camps for two to four weeks in length, bringing together students from many countries in an overseas location and you will be the only American.

Rotary Club of Coronado is required to screen applicants, age 15-18. Summer camp allow students up the age of 25 and you may be up to 18 1/2 to start the long-term exchange if you choose to do so after U.S. high school graduation. Interested applicants go through a detailed application and interviews based on scholastic record and age, linguistic ability (not necessary for summer camps), involvement with incoming exchange students and community involvement as a potential cultural ambassador.

Those interested are welcome to attend the Rotary Youth Exchange Information Night on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 6 p.m. at the Coronado Middle School, Granzer Hall. Please RSVP to coronadorotaryexchange@gmail.com.
