Central States Rotary Outbound Exchange provides students between the ages of
16 and 18 the opportunity of a lifetime! Its a chance to spend 11 months in another
country learning the language and culture. Each year, about 250 boys and girls
apply through their local Rotary Club and district. Students generally apply in
August and September to go on exchange the next year. Outbound students and
their parents are guided through months of orientation and information about the
country of their exchange year. Outbound students typically stay with two or three
Rotary-approved families and receive a monthly stipend for incidental expenses.
Rotary Youth Exchange outbound students need to be above average students who are eager for the chance to try new things and meet new people. You will learn about other cultures, about other people and about yourself. Contact a Rotary Club today for more information.
