Rotary Youth Exchange - Apply now!!
The applications for Rotary Youth Exchange (students departing Fall 2018) are now open.
To qualify, Rotary requires that students be between the ages of 15.5 and 18 upon arrival the host country, be in the upper third of their academic class, be of good character and emotionally stable, and be in good physical health.
Most importantly, students must be able and willing to be a good ambassador. Students who will graduate from their high school the same year they leave on their exchange are acceptable in the program so long as they meet the age requirements and are accepted by the host country.
There is additional information in the links provided below and I am always happy to speak with potential applicants, their families, or Rotarians who desire more information.
This is a competitive program so students are encourage to apply early. If you know of a deserving student who is interested please feel free to forward them this information and/or provide them my contact info (
