• About Youth Exchange

    Rotary Youth Exchange builds peace one young person at a time. Students learn a new language, discover another culture, and truly become global citizens. Exchanges for students ages 15-19 are sponsored by Rotary clubs in more than 100 countries.

    What are the benefits?

    Exchange students unlock their true potential to:

    • Develop lifelong leadership skills
    • Learn a new language and culture
    • Build lasting friendships with young people from around the world
    • Become a global citizen

    How long do exchanges last?

    Short-term exchanges last from several days to three months and are often structured as camps, tours, or homestays that take place when school is not in session.


    Long-term exchanges last a full academic year, and students attend local schools and live with multiple host families.
