Rotary Youth Exchange provides young people with an opportunity to experience the cultures and accomplishments of people in other countries. An official program of Rotary International, 8,000 students exchange annually to around 60 different countries. Turramurra Rotary sponsors an outbound student, and hosts an inbound student.
As a Rotary Exchange student, you will spend one year living in another country, usually with three or four host families. You will become part of those families and their community. In your host country you will learn another language, experience different foods, study different subjects and enjoy a new culture. You will learn a great deal about yourself, gain confidence and self-sufficiency, and experience adventures that will take a lifetime to recount!
Australian students undertake the exchange at the end of year 12. As selection is extremely sought after, prospective year 11 students should contact us now. Interviews are conducted from December to February, with final selection confirmed in May.
