Club & Student Information


If your Rotary District 6600 Club is considering becoming involved in Rotary Youth Exchange, please contact a member of the Youth Exchange Committee and a mentor will be assigned to assist your club with paperwork, committee training, and any questions or concerns along the way. A listing of committee members follows at the end of the toolkit provided below.

Rotary Youth Exchange is an exciting program and we want to involve as many clubs (and as many students) as possible!


As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, you’ll spend up to a year living with host families and attending school in a different country. Whether you participate in Rotary’s long-term or short-term Youth Exchange programs, you’ll learn a new way of living, a great deal about yourself, and maybe even a new language. You will be an ambassador, teaching people you meet about your country, culture, and ideas.

You can help bring the world closer – and make some good friends in the process.
