Rotary Youth Exchange Program

Starting this November

A virtual experience like no other>


Rotary Youth Exchange Program hopes to inspire young leaders to serve as catalysts for peace and social justice in their local communities and throughout the world, long after their exchanges end. 

Virtual Exchange Program

This year, the exchange program will be done virtually. It will provide the opportunity for students to have a virtual cultural exchange while in the comfort and safety of their homes.

Program Format

Students will spend 3-4 hours a week on online activities with International Partners.

Exchange Program Testimonials

Varda Shah, former Youth Exchange student from India

“Before, I would never be able to make a conversation with a person I didn’t know. Now, I can proudly say it isn’t like that anymore. I can go up to people. I have become more open, more mature.”

Yoko Sekimoto, the first Youth Exchange student from Japan

“To meet up with my classmates and host families after 50 years has been simply amazing. Through Rotary Youth Exchange I had such a precious chance and a fabulous experience. Thank you.”
