Rotary District 7070 Youth Exchange

The most powerful force in the promotion of international understanding and peace is exposure to different cultures. The world becomes a smaller, friendlier place when we learn that all people — regardless of nationality — desire the same basic things: respect, understanding and a safe environment that allows for a rich and satisfying life for our children and ourselves. Youth Exchange provides thousands of young people with the opportunity to meet people from other lands and to experience their cultures. This plants the seeds for a lifetime of international understanding, goodwill, tolerance and ultimately world peace.
Perhaps it is your turn to get involved in Rotary Youth Exchange. What a fantastic opportunity for an outstanding young member of our community. For more information on how your Rotary club can become part of this exciting program, please email us at
Interested in becoming an exchange student?  We accept applications until mid October each year for exchanges that will begin the following August.  If you are or will be a grade 11 student this fall and would like to explore the possibilities of being chosen to be an exchange student going out on exchange next August, click here to register.  
Critical to the Youth Exchange Program is a very much appreciated host family.  Host families benefit by having the opportunity to host an international exchange student - they build relationships and understanding across boarders.  Typically host families invite and host a student for 3 or more months.    Interested in becoming a host family? click here to learn more.
