Rotary International Youth Exchange Programme

Rotary International —

Rotary Youth Exchange is an official programme of Rotary and we are now seeking applications from motivated secondary school students interested in spending a year overseas as part of this long established successful educational and cultural exchange

This is your chance to obtain a Study Abroad “Scholarship” worth about $30,000 and to immerse yourself in the culture and become fluent in a foreign language in a supportive exchange programme. Become fluent in Swedish, Mandarin, German, French, Danish or Spanish.

· Students must be aged between 15 and 17 ½ at departure in January 2021.

· Exchange partners for 2021 will include: Sweden, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Chile, Denmark, Belgium and Taiwan

· No family Rotary affiliation required.

· Applications close 30 April 2020.

Rotary Youth Exchange offers student training and preparation, a strong student support structure and oversight by a reputable global service organisation. Students attend a local school but stay with several host families for variety and a true cultural experience. The effective “scholarship” is worth about $30,000, as through RYE there is no foreign student fee or need to pay for accommodation.

Students benefit from personal growth and development, independence and self confidence while making worldwide friendships and learning a new language. If you want to gain a fresh understanding of yourself and others, have fun and a whole lot of new experiences consider being a Rotary Youth Exchange student for 2021.

If you are ready for a life changing experience and for the rewarding challenge and the unique and life long rewards that come from living in another country as a RYE student, then check out www.rotaryyouthexchange9980.wordpress.com or contact us for more information and an initial application form.
